Rutgers Annual MLK Oratorical Competition

The Paul Robeson Cultural Center invites Rutgers students to the 6th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Oratorical Competition.

The competition honors the oratorical legacy of Dr. King by inviting speakers to expand on a selected Dr. King quote to share their social justice vision of the future.

Student speakers should apply by December 6, 2021. 

This year’s selected quote:

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
