Social Justice Movement discussion

Part of MLK commemoration - Tuesday morning

As part of the commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King’s visit to ONU 50 years ago, the Office of Multicultural Development will sponsor a panel discussion about the Social Justice Movement. Local residents and faculty, staff, and students are invited to the discussion which will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 13, in English Chapel on campus.

Panelists are:
• Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Jr. - Senior Pastor of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Findlay
• Amber Basares - Northwest Ohio Young Black Democrats- Lima Chapter President
• Jerome Gray - Chairman of the Board for the Black Heritage Library and Multicultural Center, Findlay
• Brittany Moore - Regional President for Northwest Ohio Young Black Democrats

“Dr. King’s Vision in the Present Social Justice Movement” is the title of the discussion which will feature panelists Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Jr. of Findlay; Amber Basares of Lima; Brittany Moore of Toledo; and Jerome Gray of Findlay.

In January, a forum was held in the Freed Center, drawing 300 people to hear from three faculty members and three students who attended Dr. King’s moving speech a half century ago.

In April the university will unveil a bronze sculpture of Dr. King which will be placed in a garden area between Taft Memorial, where he spoke, and the Tilton Law Building.
