The Berea College community celebrated the life and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during several public events beginning January 14.

Bereans march to city hall during during Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Following a street march to City Hall, Bereans gathered in Phelps Stokes Chapel to hear activist Carl Ray recount witnessing his fatherís brutal 1962 murder by a white supremacist. Ray is a former engineer and stand-up comedian.

Later that evening, Ray performed ďA Killing in Choctaw," a one-man, two-act play he wrote that depicts his life growing up in Alabama and the hate killing of his father.

Through the end of January Hutchins Library will feature a timeline exhibit showing scenes from the struggle for civil rights.
