Students prepare for MLK Youth Rally in Nebraska Union

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Nebraska Union was dark Sunday, with the exception of the Centennial Ballroom.

Students were rehearsing for the 28th annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Youth Rally that will take place Monday morning.

The rally is a chance to celebrate the life and dreams of both Martin Luther King Jr. and Dr. Leola Bullock through positive youth action.

The event will be hosted in person for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic as well as being streamed online.

“When you come, you’re going to be empowered, you’re going to be educated and you’re going to be engaged,” said adult coordinator Peter Ferguson. “I have gotten more out of them than they have received from me.”

The rally will kick off at 8:45 a.m. Monday, and will conclude with their call to action around 10 a.m. You can find more information here.
