The City of San Marcos celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, but January 20 was Texas State University’s turn to remember and celebrate MLK.

A campus march and commemoration ceremony was held January 20 at around 6 p.m. in remembrance of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the Texas State University campus.

Students and staff gathered and marched from one end of the campus to the other. They started the Old Main building and ended at the LBJ Student Center. The crowd began singing old Negro spirituals, in efforts to reenact the many civil rights marches Dr. King once led.

A commemoration ceremony was held after the march at the LBJ Student Center. Members of the MLK Planning Committee performed a skit reliving important moments in Dr. King’s life. Texas State junior Joseph Pomar, says the that a particular phrase at the end of the skit impacted him tremendously and gives his personal reasons on why he attended the march.

“It was the ending statements where it says, “I am King!” because I never realized how much we were all interconnected until that was said. I do a lot of work with the social justice here at Texas State University. I’m a proud member of Lamda of Texas State and this is a cause that’s near and dear to my heart.”

There was also a film and panel discussion held on January 21 at 6:30 p.m. in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The discussion took place in the Centennial Hall Teaching Theater on the Texas State campus.
