"We Still March: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. March and Candlelight Vigil"
Wednesday, January 18, 2012
University Center Brick Patio
The life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. redefined the civil rights movement and acted as a catalyst for many of the freedoms we currently enjoy. We are inviting the entire campus community as well as the citizens of Valdosta to join us as we celebrate the legacy of this influential pioneer and reflect on the impact he has had on our nation. The VSU NAACP College Chapter, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. - Mu Omicron Chapter, and the Office of Social Equity will be hosting the event.
We will start assembling for the march at 4:30 PM in front of the University Center at the intersection of Ann and North Patterson Street. At 5:00 PM we will begin marching down to the front of the campus front lawn and we ask that everyone proceed to the front of West Hall (in front the fountain) for the candlelight vigil ceremony. Please do not bring your own candles. Candles will be provided but limited. Our very own President Dr. Louis Levy and Reverend Floyd Rose of the local Valdosta SCLC branch will be speaking at the ceremony. If the weather conditions do not allow us to have the event outside, there will be an alternative location.
We hope that you may be able to attend and celebrate with us. This will be nothing short of a historic event for VSU!
