Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF), will deliver the keynote address for Duke University's annual Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration.

The public is invited to the annual program, which will link Dr. King's civil rights legacy to the continuing struggle for equity and justice in all facets of our society.
