Next week, North­eastern Uni­ver­sity will honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as part of an annual tra­di­tion span­ning more than three decades.

The annual Martin Luther King Jr. Con­vo­ca­tion will be held on Friday, Jan. 13, at 11:45 a.m. in Blackman Audi­to­rium. The event, spon­sored by the John D.
