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:
