Event Details

Start Date:  January 21, 2013
Start Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: JFK Auditorium

Dr. Clark

This year’s Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lecture will be held on January 21, at 7:00 p.m. in the JFK Auditorium. The free lecture is open to the public and will focus on King's sermon from August 11, 1957, about Conquering Self Centeredness. “An individual has not begun to live until he can rise above the narrow horizons of his particular individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. . . . . .Every person must decide whether they will walk in the light of creative altruism or the darkness of destructive selfishness. This is the judgment. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?”

Dr. Charles E. Clark, Jr. will present the lecture. Dr. Clark currently serves a pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church in Detroit, MI, and as assistant professor and director of recruitment at Ecumenical Theological Seminary in Detroit, MI. His 25 year career in higher education has included positions at University of Arkansas, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and Pennsylvania State University.
