News from Dr. Rev. C.T. Vivian's Speech

Each year, Ashland University Honors students have the opportunity to attend lectures and events in order to interact with some great leaders of our time.

The event on Monday, January 19th was no exception.  On Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Ashland University Center for Nonviolence, in partnership with the Honors Program, Religious Life, and Multicultural Student Services, were proud to welcome Dr. Rev. C.T. Vivian to campus.  

Dr. Vivian has dedicated his life to working towards civil rights and eliminating social injustice.  His accolades include earning the Presidential Medal of Freedom bestowed on him by President Obama; serving as an adviser for the the United Nations and five different presidential administrations; and, of course, working alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Birmingham and Selma.

Dr. Vivian's appearance on campus was also picked up by a local news station:

Civil Rights Leader to speak as part of MLK Day Program

The Ashland Center for Nonviolence has arranged to bring civil rights legend Rev. Dr. CT Vivian to campus for MLK Day (Jan 19) and the Honors Program is co-sponsoring the event. Rev. Dr. Vivian is truly a living legend, and this may be a chance of a lifetime opportunity for students to meet one of the original civil rights leaders (he is 88 years old). Dr. Vivian was friends with King, was into nonviolence before King was, organized some of the very early protests, and recently was awarded a presidential medal of honor by President Obama.

You all are invited to partake in this incredible opportunity!
