Event Description:

The Associated Student Government and the Black Students Association at the University of Arkansas invite the campus and community to celebrate and remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at the annual vigil at noon on Monday, January 21, 2019 in the Arkansas Union Verizon Ballroom, on the fifth floor of the Arkansas Union. The vigil will occur at the end of the annual march and is part of a full day’s events hosted by the Northwest Arkansas Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Council. The vigil is free and open to the public. There will be a coffee bar for those in attendance.

This year’s vigil will include remarks from multiple speakers as well as a performance by the Inspirational Chorale. The speakers at the 2019 vigil include a keynote address by Mrs. Angela Mosley Monts, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion and President of the Northwest Arkansas Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Council. Members of the student body will also speak at the vigil.

Angela Mosley Monts serves as Assistant Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Arkansas. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism. She also has a Master of Ministry from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, and a Master of Business in technology from Webster University in St. Louis, Mo.

The Inspirational Chorale, a vocal ensemble of University of Arkansas students under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Murdock, works to keep the black sacred music tradition alive. The ensemble provides a forum where university students, regardless of ethnicity, can perform the various genres of the tradition. A clip of an Inspirational Chorale performance can be viewed at their website.
