Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Week

I received an e-mail from Valerie Gonzalez lauding the positive influence of Dr. King’s legacy: “Martin Luther King Jr. was a great leader to all African-Americans in his day. But today in society he inspires every race, not only African-Americans, but everyone who is asked who is Martin Luther King? I am inspired by Martin Luther King especially when I hear his “I have a dream” speech. He changed the world by his fight against segregation. And today we can see and prove that he was a great leader.”

Certainly, Dr. King embodied the “Be the Change” spirit. And, JMU, the 2008 MLK Celebration Committee, and the Center for Multicultural Student Services have a great week of activities planned to celebrate his remarkable life and work. Check out the calendar, and don’t miss your chance to participate!
