This year marks the 20th anniversary of the national Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. On Monday, January 16, 2006, the New York State Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Observance will be held at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany starting at 8:30AM with a musical prelude by the King Interdenominational Choir. The live satellite program will begin promptly at 9:00AM. This year’s program will feature a presentation by the State University of New York at Albany’s Department of Africana Studies.
Over the past six years, the State University of New York has co-sponsored the live satellite broadcast working with cable television systems throughout the State of New York. As a result, citizens throughout NYS have been able to view this tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
