MLK vigil

Provost Marie Lynn Miranda (in white) and other members of the Rice community attended a candlelight vigil and program Jan. 14 titled “Where Do We Go From Here?” the night before Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Among the speakers was alumna Gillian Perkins (pictured below.) Rice also participated in Houston’s two annual parades honoring civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.: the Black Heritage Society’s 40th annual “Original” MLK Parade and the 24th annual MLK Grande Parade.
