To celebrate the legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., Sacramento State will host a pair of January events.

The 23rd annual inspirational breakfast, ‘‘A Call to Action: Live the Dream,’’ will be held from 8 a.m. to noon, Mon., Jan. 16 in the University Union Ballroom. And the musical And the Dream Goes On!, a tribute to King’s spirit, will open at 8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 6 in the University Theatre in Shasta Hall and continue with Thursday and weekend performances through Jan. 15.

The breakfast will feature speakers, performances from choirs and vocalists, and dramatic presentations along with a breakfast buffet. Representatives from more than 40 regional churches are expected to attend.

Breakfast keynote speaker Claybon Lea, pastor of Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Fairfield, was inducted into the Martin Luther King Jr. Board of Preachers at Morehouse College in 2000. He was selected to be part of the 2004 Oxford Round Table discussion on Religion, Education and the Role of Government at the University of Oxford in England.

Through song, dance and poetry, the musical And the Dream Goes On! portrays the history of the African American experience and the reality of King’s vision being passed on to new generations.

Tickets for the breakfast are $22 and are available through the Sacramento State Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or Tickets.com.

For the musical, two free tickets per person are given away 45 minutes prior to any performance at the Shasta Hall Box Office, to be used only for that particular day. Each ticket guarantees a seat until 15 minutes before show time.
