April 4- UTHSC Reflects and Remembers: The Legacy, The Struggle, The Dream

|

To Faculty, Staff and Students,

On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee outside of the Lorraine Motel, while he worked diligently to combat the discrimination against local sanitation workers. As we commemorate his legacy during the civil rights movement, we welcome you to attend the “Reflect and Remember” lunch session with Dr. Alvin Crawford in the SAC Dining Hall at 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., as he discusses the struggles during that period of the civil rights movement. Dr. Crawford is the first African American student to graduate from the UTHSC College of Medicine. As we reflect on the memory of Dr. King, Jr., let’s also reflect on the thousands of people who gave their lives to reverse the racial discrimination in our society. Lunch will be provided.

We hope to see you there.

Thanks,

The Office of Special Events
