The Babson community remembers, reflects upon, and celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. This event, now in its 18th year, initiates important conversations to continue the realization of King’s vision of justice, equality, and peace in our own community and in the world at large. The program includes a ceremony recognizing students and faculty through leadership and creativity awards.
This year’s keynote speaker is former professional tennis player James Blake, who is no stranger to obstacles. He has battled loss and overwhelming adversity and went on to become a top ranked US player with ten ATP Tour singles titles, 7 doubles titles, Davis Cup champion, and is a recipient of the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year award.
