Each year, the Rice Community hosts an event to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. Starting in 2019, the Black Male Leadership Initiative became the group to coordinate the annual event. The vigil featured the Melodius Voices of Praise Gospel Choir and the Phillip Hall Singers. Our keynote speaker this year was none other than the Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner. Please take a look through our photo gallery and stay in the loop about the 2020 MLK Vigil & Program.
