Penn State York reschedules programs to honor Martin Luther King Jr.

Two programs to honor the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr., were postponed on Jan 21 due to inclement weather and have been  rescheduled for Jan. 28.

A re-enactment and discussion of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech is set for 12:05 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, when Penn State York students will share King’s famous words and their thoughts about their powerful impact. At 6 p.m., a screening of the movie “Gandhi,” a biographical film which dramatizes the life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the leader of India’s nonviolent, noncooperative independence movement against the United Kingdom’s rule of the country during the 20th century.

Following the movie, a discussion will take place highlighting the ways in which King embraced Gandhi’s philosophy of peaceful resistance during the civil rights movement. Both programs are free and take place in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center.
