William Woods University will honor the late Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King with a special one-hour program at 7 p.m. Monday in Dulany Auditorium.
Two WWU students will perform during the event. Nicoya Kind, a freshman from Kansas City, will perform an interpretive dance. Tracey Potts, a sophomore from Columbia and a member of the university’s Multicultural Student Task Force, will do a reading.
The Rev. C.W. Dawson, multicultural coordinator at William Woods, will speak on “Where Do We Go From Here?” Nationally known for his oratory skills, Dawson is also pastor of Calvary Baptist Church and WWU adjunct professor of religion and philosophy.
The program will also feature music by the Thomas Bradford Singers, a Gospel music group from St. Louis. Bradford is no stranger to Fulton. He commutes here each Sunday to serve as the accompanist for a choir at Calvary Baptist Church. His wife and daughter are the other members of his singing group.
The celebration of Martin Luther King’s birthday is free and open to the public.
