Know Your History to Guide Your Future (virtual)
Monday, January 25, 2021
In most years the community treats Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a day to volunteer their time in honor of the civil rights leader. The same is true at College of Lake County (CLC) which in the past has partnered with United Way of Lake County to organize hundreds of volunteers to work projects. Unfortunately, the 2021 holiday will not be the same due to COVID-19. However, the day will not pass without recognition. At least one CLC tradition will continue: a dramatic storytelling of Dr. King's life and impact on civil rights.
CLC is partnering with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Chi Lambda chapter, to present 'Know Your History to Guide Your Future.' As a part of the event, Marcus Gentry of Marcus Gentry Associates will present his one man play, "I Have a Dream: A King's Journey." The performance is designed with an educational focus, centered around historical content.
