PPCC Celebrates King and His Dream
Carol Salyers, January 19, 2012
The PPCC community came together at Centennial Campus to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. on Jan. 16. In a room filled with great diversity of race, age and religion, his dream clearly lives on right here, right now. Nathaniel Granger, Jr., Psy.D., performed his reenactment of King's "I Have a Dream Speech" to a rapt audience who clapped, shouted and wept like an audience might have in 1963.
The program featured remarks from students and faculty plus musical performances including "Lift Every Voice and Sing," the Black National Anthem. Regina Lewis, Ph.D., Communication faculty, served as master of ceremonies.
Thanks go to Campus Life and the Office of Multicultural Affairs for their efforts in organizing this celebration of King's legacy.
