Vincent Harding, an activist in the American Civil Rights Movement, headlines MSU Denver's annual Martin Luther King Junior Peace Breakfast, Friday, Jan. 18, 2013 from 8-10 a.m. in the Tivoli Turnhalle.
Harding is professor emeritus of religion and social transformation at the Iliff School of Theology at the University of Denver and chair of The Veterans of Hope Project, an educational resource center that supports positive social change. Rather than speak, he will serve as facilitator of a dialogue among attendees on how we can all be more active in our community. In his book, "Martin Luther King: The Inconvenient Hero," Harding proclaims that "We've got work to do."
"We plan to honor Dr. King's life in a new way, with what we hope will be a successful call for action," explains Campus Recreation Director Tony Price, who is on the MLK Peace Breakfast Committee.
Local television personality Tamara Banks will moderate the discussion.
Peace Awards in the categories of student, faculty/staff and community member will be given.
Tickets for the event are $10 for students; $15 general admission and are available in PER Room 108, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
For information, call 303-556-3210.
