National Basketball Association (NBA) Hall of Famer David Robinson and his son, a Notre Dame graduate and former football player Corey Robinson will be the featured keynote speakers during the University of Notre Dame's Martin Luther King Celebration luncheon on Jan. 22 (Monday). This campus-wide luncheon will be the capstone event of Notre Dame’s 2018 Walk the Walk Week in honor of the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
Corey will interview his father in a fireside chat format, exploring the family’s motivations for service and sharing insights on how they have worked to serve their communities and make a difference.
Corey graduated from Notre Dame in 2017 with a Program of Liberal Studies major and a sustainability minor. A former Fighting Irish football player, he stepped away from the game after three seasons due to concussions. He continued his involvement with the football program as a student assistant coach during the 2016 season and served as the student body president. While at Notre Dame, Corey co-founded the nonprofit organization One Shirt One Body, which promotes the pursuit of higher education through the donation of issued gear by college athletes to their local communities. A Rhodes Scholar finalist, he was also a first team Academic All-American. He currently resides in New York and works at Gagosian Gallery, a leading contemporary art gallery.
