Ohio University Zanesville will continue to honor the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Junior through a series of virtual events this week.
On Tuesday evening at 7pm via Zoom, Reverend Dr. Bernard Lafayette will speak.
“He is actually one of the original freedom fighters and so he’s going to share his experience and share the life and legacy he has as well,” said Heather Sands-Davis coordinator of campus communications at OUZ.
Dr. Lafayette will speak about his role as a civil rights activist, organizer and leader of the Civil Rights Movement. Then on Wednesday afternoon at 1pm a campus conversation called “When Thoughts and Prayer’s aren’t Enough” will take place with Rt. Rev. W. Michie Klusmeyer. He’ll share his experience and history and lead viewers through the seven steps to end racism.
It’s important to us here on campus. Our main campus is doing multiple events as well. So, some of these virtual events that are taking place across Southeastern Ohio we should bring them to Muskingum County and our region,” said Sands-Davis.
