Still Dreaming: Boise State Celebrates MLK's Living Legacy

George Prentice

Monday, Jan. 20 marks Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Idaho Human Rights Day. A highlight of what organizers call a "Day of Greatness"begins with a march up Boise's Capitol Boulevard to the Idaho Statehouse, launching a week of events.

Morning Edition host George Prentice spoke with Francisco Salinas, director of the Boise State Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion and Boise State student Ryann Banks, chair of the MLK Living Legacy Celebration.

“It’s a day to bring life from the legacy of Dr. King’s memory into our everyday activities.”
