Roland Martin — an award-winning journalist, political analyist and CNN contributor — will deliver the keynote address at MIT's 37th annual Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast, taking place today beginning at 7:30 a.m.
This year's celebration of the life and legacy of MLK, titled "Excellence is a Shared Path: Working Together for Justice and the Quality of Life," will take place in Morss Hall, Walker Memorial, 142 Memorial Drive, Cambridge.
Martin, one of the most high-profile African Americans in media today, appears frequently on shows including The Situation Room, Anderson Cooper 360°, Lou Dobbs Tonight and more.
