University to honor King on Jan. 22

The Rev. Benjamin L. Hooks, a lawyer and Baptist preacher born in the segregated South who dedicated his life to advancing the civil rights of African Americans, will be the keynote speaker for U.Va.’s 2002 celebration of the life of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

The program, “Abiding and Audacious Faith: The Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” will be held Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. in Old Cabell Hall. It is free and open to the public.

In addition to Hook’s talk, “Where Do We Go From Here?” the program will feature King’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, delivered by fourth-year student James Nowlin III, a presentation by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and dancing by the Mahogany Dance Troupe.

The program is co-sponsored by the offices of African-American Affairs, Equal Opportunity Programs, the Dean of Students, the Center for Religion and Democracy, the Institute for Public History, the Cultural Programming Board and the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration.

U.Va. employees have the day off Jan. 21 in observance of King’s birthday. Classes will be in session.
