The Dream Remembered

The College and Seminary will hold their annual observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Thursday, January 17, in the HUB’s Prosser Auditorium, beginning at 8:00 p.m.

Featured speaker is Rev. James Alexander Forbes Jr., senior minister of New York’s Riverside Church.

Forbes is a distinguished pastor who has served on the faculty of Union Theological Seminary and Auburn Theological Seminary. A well-known speaker, he has been named one of a handful of exceptional American preachers by Ebony magazine (1984 and 1993), Baylor University (1995), and Newsweek magazine (1996).

In 1998, he was the inaugural Luce Lecturer at Harvard Divinity School, where he explored the theme of urban ministry. That same year, he participated in the Department of Justice’s Round Table on Youth Violence at the White House and delivered the keynote address at President Clinton’s Initiative on Race meeting in New Orleans.

The program will include readings and music. The MLK Voices of Inspiration choir, directedby Mark Andrew Miller, will sing “Gabi Gabi,” a South African song of justice, accompanied by Trish Glazebrook, visiting assistant professor of philosophy, on African drum. It also will perform “God Is Able,” a setting by Miller of a text by King. Miller is director of music for Moravian’s Church Without Walls and Drew [University] Theological School in New Jersey.

The evening will end with a candlelight vigil at the Peace Pole.

Also, paintings by African-American artist Dane Tilghman will be on display in the HUB’s H. Paty Eiffe Gallery through February 18. Opening reception: 4:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday, January 17.
