CSC celebrates MLK Day

Five 50-minute panels are scheduled for Monday morning in the Student Center Ballroom in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Social and Communication Arts Instructor Michael Kennedy will begin the day with an 8 a.m. presentation titled, “Photojournalism and Civil Rights: Influential Images of the Civil Rights Era.” The images during this presentation will be graphic and not for those with weak stomachs, Kennedy said.

The second presentation at 9 a.m. will feature Social and Communication Arts Assistant Professor David Nesheim, who will present “Social Sciences and School Segregation – From Brown v. Board of Education to Today.”

A documentary on the Selma-to-Montgomery marches with a discussion on voting issues will be playing at 10 a.m.

Jovan Mays, a well-known poet, will speak at 11 a.m.

To finish the panel discussions, G. W. Sandy Schaefer will present “Music and the Struggle for Equality” at noon.

At 1 p.m., participants in the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day march will begin meeting at the corner of Third and Main streets. The march will begin at 1:15 p.m.

The march is planned to end at 2 p.m. at the Chicoine Events Center. At the completion of the march, there will be a 40-minute program, which will include Cardinal Singers; Albert Bimper, of Colorado State University, as the keynote speaker; the Chadron Public School’s 6th grade choir; and the Public School’s kindergarten through 4th grade singers.

That night beginning at 7 p.m., there will be an Martin Luther King Jr. themed Open Mic Night, featuring Mays.
