Bacone’s Christian Ministry students will host the celebration, including a viewing of “I have a Dream,” a reading of Robert Kennedy’s “Eulogy of Martin Luther King,” and readings of “A Letter from Selma” and “Phone Call at Midnight,” and a performance by the Bacone Gospel Choir.
Guest speakers include Pastor Ron Ventors, Apostle Lathan Archie, and Pastor Kelly Payne, and keynote speaker is Dr. Stephen Wiley, special advisor to the Bacone president and assistant professor of religion.
Kennedy said in his famous speech, “What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love, and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black.”
Dr. King simply and eloquently said, “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” Bacone College is delighted to honor the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Please join us for refreshments after the celebration.
