Monday, January 18 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day): Celebration attendees gathered for hot cocoa and moment of meditation and remembrance at the Hindsman Bell Tower. After a peace march to the Young Ballroom, attendees joined voices for a rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing”. Student AD Wallace followed with a rendition of King’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” The United Voices of Praise choir then performed a selection of songs to round out the celebration.
