Wynton will appear on the Tulane University campus on Martin Luther King Day to help celebrate the reopening of Tulane, Xavier, Dillard and Loyola universities, all forced to forgo their fall semesters due to damage inflicted by Hurricane Katrina.
He will deliver a keynote speech about the cultural rebirth of the city followed immediately by a concert that is free and open to the public. The event takes place in McAlister Auditorium on Jan. 16 at 7 p.m.

“The visit by this world-class musician and humanitarian embodies the unity of our four universities on a day that not only honors one of America’s greatest figures but also marks the rebirth of higher education in the city of New Orleans,” said Tulane President Scott Cowen.
