There was power in our "hole in the wall" on MLK birthday!

For the open discussion on January 15,  in a packed house, we had a lively and positive conversation about our reflections on the life and contributions on Dr King.

Here are some of the takeaways:

  • Dr. King transformed between the "I have a dream" speech to his final focus on black economics
  • Dr. King began to unify everyone once he expanded his viewpoints
  • Because of segregation, blacks were forced to practice cooperative economics. We gave up our tradition of supporting each other with integration.
  • Dr. King was global- he traveled to Africa and Jamaica and was influenced by Marcus Garvey.
  • It is extremely important to voice your opinion.
  • Dr. King and his family were in harm's way consistently because of his beliefs.
  • We need another leader like Martin Luther King today.
The term "hole in the wall" is an African concept. Stay tuned--Minister Lawrance Evans will break it down in future Student Doology Hour services.
