LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 30, 2013) — The University of Kentucky’s Martin Luther King (MLK) Center and Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Center are co-hosting the 5th annual Rock the Dot talent show at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11, in the MLK Center, located on the first floor of the Student Center Addition.

 

Individual or group acts are encouraged to perform at the show. Previous performances have included singing, dancing, poetry and juggling, but all talent is welcome. Several artists have already been scheduled, including JusJ, Black Voices, Dajom Spades, Chris-Viper, TaShawnna Grinter, Joseph Camuglia, Dominique Webster, Daron Peterson, Jordan Jackson, and spoken word by Savonte Jones and Porsha Jackson. Prizes will be awarded to the best performances of the night. Anyone wishing to share a talent or volunteer at the event can contact the VIP Center at vipcenter@uky.edu or 859-257-3189.

 

Rock the Dot celebrates the Green Dot violence prevention strategy. This strategy began at UK and is now practiced at more than 100 campuses nationwide. The VIP Center works with students, staff, faculty and community partners to shape a safe and violence-free campus. The MLK Center supports the university’s diversity goals by developing and offering programs and experiences designed to prepare all students for the social, cultural and political challenges of an increasingly complex, multicultural, global community.
