Kennesaw State University kicked off its week-long celebration honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his impact on the civil rights movement.

The activities started Thursday with a luncheon at the KSU Convocation Center and a keynote address by Mary Frances Early.

The now-retired educator has a number of amazing achievements but perhaps, most notably, she is the first African-American graduate from the University of Georgia. 

Other activities held this week include community service events and a special reflection on Dr. King's legacy.
