His Life, Our Loss, His Legacy

“Help us walk together, pray together, sing together, and live together until that day when all God’s children, Black, Brown, White, Red, and Yellow, will rejoice in one common band of humanity in the Kingdom of our Lord and of our God…”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, 1956

The family of Trinity Christian College gathered on Monday, January 21, to honor the memory of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Let’s dedicate this time to think about his life, death, and legacy and what that means to us,” said Master of Ceremony Tabitha Matthews, residence director.

A number of students, faculty, and staff shared their personal reflections about how King’s work affected their lives and continues to inspire today.

Dr. David Brodnax, assistant professor of history, provided historical context for the program, and reminded those gathered that King’s ideals stemmed from his love of God, desire to do His will, and the firm belief in Jesus’ command to “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Student Candace Brown ’09 of Joliet, Illinois, led the crowd in singing “We Shall Overcome.”
