On Wednesday, three finalists will compete at 2 p.m. in the final round of the college portion of the Martin Luther King Enterprise Oratory Competition. Vincent Burr, a sophomore nursing major; Thomas Lewis Jr., a junior accounting major, and Ashley Neely, a junior accounting economics major, will compete. The competition is free and open to public. Free food will be provided.

On Thursday, there will be a screening of “Return of the King,” which is an episode of “The Boondocks” television show, at 1:30 p.m. in Room 300 at the Nigh University Center.

The show received criticism from the Rev. Al Sharpton for the use of racially charged language by King's character. The screening is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

On Friday, a commemorative march will take place at 2 p.m., beginning at the Nigh University Center by the African American mural on the second floor.
