Virtual presentations and luncheon paid tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

North Central College has a long history of celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.—a history highlighted by Dr. King’s visit to campus and speech at the College’s Pfeiffer Hall in 1960. This year, the College hosted a number of virtual MLK Vision Day events under the theme “Keep Moving Forward.”

The College’s MLK Day virtual events were featured in both Naperville Community Television (NCTV17) and in the Naperville Patch.

The message of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. may have come before its time, but it still rings true in 2022 for the Rev. Dr. Geneace Williams. Williams, the diversity, equity and inclusion manager for the City of Naperville, gave remarks Monday, Jan. 17 as the keynote speaker at the College’s virtual luncheon paying tribute to MLK.

“This is a day and time we dare to hope,” Williams said. “We dare to hope many will be inspired to continue the work that in some ways predated Dr. King.”
