January 24, 2012
Lloyd Roberson, a senior in the Media Arts and Science program, was recently honored at the 43rd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dinner at the Indiana Roof Ballroom.
Roberson received the Joseph T. Taylor Academic Award, which is presented to an African-American student who has more than 60 Indiana University credit hours and a 3.5 grade point average or higher.
The MLK Dinner is Indianapolis’ longest-running celebration of King’s legacy. Elaine Brown, a social activist whose fight for equality goes back to her days as a leader in the Black Panther Party, delivered this year’s keynote address.
