I HAVE A DREAM

The University of Kansas celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the rotunda of Strong Hall with a reading by literary doctoral candidate Kenton Ramsby and an a capella performance by Genuine Imitation, followed by a candlelight walk to the Kansas Union. Then at 5:15 in the Ballroom, student body president Marcus Tetwiler will host "Inspired Dreams," a ceremony featuring a keynote address by African and African-American studies associate professor Clarence Lang and a reading of the top three MLK essays by students of Liberty Memorial Central Middle School. This event is free and open to the public.

THERE MUST BE SOME KIND OF WAY OUT OF HERE

Turkish filmmaker Pelin Esmer, a bright new star in international cinema, will present her second film "Watchtower" at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Liberty Hall. Winner of five awards at the Adana Golden Boll International Film Festival, including best director, "Watchtower" tells the story of a man and a woman with haunted pasts seeking refuge in the Turkish countryside who must grapple with their consciences before each other. The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the director. The event is free and open to all ages; this film contains nudity and adult themes.
