Danielle Reed '16 will serve as student speaker for this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.

Danielle Reed '16 has been named as the student speaker for the Dr. Martin Luther King Junior Celebration, which takes place at the Carrier Dome on Jan. 31. Reed is a senior from Atlanta with a double major in Spanish language, literature and culture and African American studies, both in the College of Arts and Sciences. This year she returns from a semester abroad in Madrid, where she filmed her first documentary, "Black en Spain," which investigates the experiences of people of the African diaspora living in Spain. Reed is an aspiring journalist who interned at Time Warner Cable News in Syracuse last summer through the T. Howard Foundation, and currently reports for Citrus TV News on campus. Reed is an active member of the Syracuse community, having worked at the Community Folk Art Center and having led efforts to re-establish The Black Voice, a campus publication that was founded in 1968. She hopes to debut "Black en Spain" on campus and in the community this February.

Tickets for the 31st annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration are still available.

Student tickets are $15 and can be purchased through a meal plan at dining halls.

Students without a meal plan can purchase at Schine Box Office. Tickets for employees, staff and the general public will be sold only through the Schine Box Office and are available on an individual basis ($30) or in blocks of 10 ($300). Cash, credit, or interdepartmental ID, may be used. All ticket sales are being handled through Shine Box Office, and tickets will be available for pickup at the box office at the time of purchase or at the Carrier Dome Gate A on the evening of the event.

Please note that all tickets are for general seating. Event organizers encourage attendees, in the spirit of Dr. King, to allow for a wide variety of people to sit at each table. This will encourage attendees to meet new people who may in turn broaden the perspective of all who attend.
