College of Liberal Arts Leads Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Honor

On January 16, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., the College of Liberal Arts enacted its annual public reading of Dr. King’s most significant writings. Students from our Ethics courses, faculty, staff and administration all took turns reading the Letter from Birmingham Jail, his Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance, and the I Have a Dream and I’ve Been to the Mountaintop speeches. Dean Douglas Cremer expressed his motivation for ensuring the College leads this event each year: “We need to remember the ideals for which Dr. King fought and died: equality, respect, honesty, passion, dedication, and nonviolent resistance.” The public reading centers the MLK Day of Honor.
