Honoring the Life and Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Texas Christian University commemorates and acknowledges the life and legacy of a transformational leader on Monday, January 18, 2021. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. sought racial equality and justice and made unfailing advantages for civil rights in that country. We honor and acknowledge his many contributions to the world.

Black Lives Matter

We honor the legacies of black men and women who have been killed and say their names: George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Atatiana Jefferson, Botham Jean, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, and far too many more.

The findings are now available in an executive summary.
