30th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration

MUSC is a member of the Black History Intercollegiate Consortium (BHIC). BHIC is an organization of higher education institutions in the Tri-County area – MUSC, Charleston Southern University, College of Charleston, The Citadel, and Trident Technical College. Founded in 1988, the historical mission of this group was to create a forum to enhance racial harmony between the member institutions and the Charleston community; and to provide opportunities for the community to celebrate the achievements of African Americans throughout the year. The marque event each year for BHIC is the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration.

This is the 30th Annual BHIC MLK Celebration and MUSC is serving as this year’s host institution. The 2020 MLK celebration will be held on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at MUSC, Drug Discovery Auditorium, 6:30 p.m.
