Speaker to honor Martin Luther King at brunch

Dec 18, 2008  

Ohio University will commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 19, with a silent march that will start at Galbreath Chapel at 10:30 a.m. and end with a brunch at Baker University Center.

Joe Rogers, the former lieutenant governor of Colorado, will serve as the day's keynote speaker during the annual MLK Memorial Service Brunch at 11 a.m. in the Baker University Center Ballroom.

After finishing his term as lieutenant governor in 2003, Rogers created The Dream Alive Program to honor the slain civil rights leader's contributions to history. In addition to serving as a national speaker, he runs his own law firm in Aurora, Colo.

During his presentation, Rogers will discuss the importance of King's teachings and emulate portions of King?s "I Have a Dream" and "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speeches.

The cost of the brunch is $5 for students, $7 for all others. Tables of eight cost $50. Tickets can be reserved by e-mailing Tamika Kramer at kramert@ohio.edu.
