OC Commemorates MLK Day
Monday, January 21, 2008
Oklahoma Christian University commemorated Martin Luther King Jr.
Day with a special convocation ceremony. Dr. Lawrence Murray, assistant
professor of psychology, gave a brief explanation of some of the events
that led to the historic March on Washington, led by King in 1963.
After Dr. Murray’s words, students, faculty and staff watched a video
of King’s poignant and inspiring “I Have a Dream” speech. OC student
James Simmons concluded convocation with the “Negro National Anthem”.
May we take this day to honor the courage of those who went before us and be inspired to challenge the injustices of our world.
