USI reflects on MLK Day

Posted: Updated:

At USI on Monday, the annual MLK Jr. Memorial Luncheon was held in Carter Hall. 

Students, faculty, and other guests enjoyed entertainment, lunch, and several speakers. Indiana Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann was one of the guest speakers, and she says it's important to pause and reflect on what this day means.

"We really want to hold up and have our young people know and understand not only his dreams and aspirations, but the way he went about it in a very peaceful manner. Engaging, educating, and organizing in a way that really brought all Americans to a conclusion which we should've hit years before," Ellspermann said.

The event's keynote speaker was Susan Taylor with Essence Magazine.
