King observance planned for Jan. 21

The University will observe its Martin Luther King Day Celebration on Monday, Jan. 21, with a tribute that will include a keynote address, a choir performance and the presentation of awards to essay and poster contest winners from area schools. The program will begin at 1:30 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall.

Giving the address at this year's tribute will be DeForest Soaries, New Jersey secretary of state in the Whitman and DiFrancesco administrations. Since 1999, he has led a department devoted to preserving and promoting the story of New Jersey through the states arts, history and culture.

The Praise Ensemble from the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens in Somerset will perform during the event.

The theme for this year's essay and poster contests centers on the importance of increased understanding and respect among all races. Many of the posters will be displayed during the program.

Parking is available in two public lots located on Hulfish and Chambers streets in Princeton. Metered parking also is available in town.
