Museum event honors King's legacy

David Oyelowo appears as Martin Luther King Jr. in the 2014 film

Later in the week, the Memorial Student Center Carter G. Woodson Black Awareness Committee at Texas A&M will host writer, activist and cultural commentator Kevin Powell as the featured speaker of the 11th annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "So we thought that would be very appropriate with Dr. King's philosophy and also timely".

"To remember the price that was paid for the civil rights for all of us".

Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee founding member Diana Nash will speak at Lansing's MLK Day event and the University of MI in Ann Arbor will hold an annual symposium.

Scott Thurmond, executive director for Friends of the Mission, said this will be the fifth year Fourth & Hope and Friends of the Mission have invited people to participate in the national day of service.

Ingalls watched televised coverage of the Washington event, admittedly because folk music performers she wanted to see were there, including Joan Baez and Peter, Paul and Mary. King would also help with the 1962 and 1963 protests in Georgia and Alabama.


King's message was simple. "But the key is to fight back with love and in a way that comes from love".

Members of those families have made a mark in such fields as industry, business, engineering, criminal justice and others. Students, faculty and staff will come together from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.to perform community service at the Homeless Coalition of Southern Indiana, Green Valley Care Center and Our Place Drug and Alcohol Services.

Events are scheduled throughout Yolo County to celebrate the life and legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King.

The program passed out to those attending Saturday's event told of how Lafayette during the 1960s battle for civil rights served as a freedom rider and endured riots, fire bombings and jail time.
