The University of Utah has scheduled a number of activities this week in conjunction with the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

They will feature a repertoire of gospel music, spirituals and Afro-American folk songs.

Two exhibits will be on display throughout the month of January. "Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement" can be seen in the Olpin Union foyer, and "Expressions of Belief: Masterpieces of African, Oceanic and Indonesian Art" from the Museum voor Volkenkunde, Rotterdam, can be seen at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.
