College students honor Dr. King's message
A silence fell over the crowd gathered on the Thompson Hall lawn as the bells tolled, and cheers rang out as they stopped.
Their presence on the lawn was a testament to the power of King's words, he said, and the life Martin Luther King Jr. led.
Echoing King's words in a "Letter from Birmingham Jail," Mallory said no one is truly free or truly able to realize their destiny until all people are able to do likewise.
"When I think about the words, it reminds me I come from a place of privilege, and not to turn my back. Even after all these years there is still progress to be made and I'm happy to help make future progress," Merrill said.
