Salt Lake Community College‘s 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. events will be the best yet. The events will be even better with your participation and the participation of your students.

This year, the distinguished guests will even be available to come to SLCC classrooms. Sharon Ewell Foster is an eloquent speaker on issues that would interest Dr. King today. Her acclaimed work-she‘s won the NAACP Book of the Year award, a Golden Pen award from the Black Writers Alliance among others-explores love, diversity, and hope.

Ms. Foster will be available to attend classes on January 28 and 30, 2014. Foster‘s appearance presents a wonderful opportunity to enrich and deepen classes across a range of disciplines.

In addition to her availability for classes, Ms. Foster will participate in a panel discussion with 2014 Humanitarian Awardees, moderated by Dr. John McCormick at 12:00 p.m. on January 29 in the Oak Room.

A concert, Remembering MLK Through Story & Song, will be January 30 at 7:30 p.m. at South City Campus. Dr. Dennis Slaughter of Boston will be the featured artist on Thursday evening joined by the George Brown Jazz Ensemble and vocalists Glory Johnson-Stanton, Christine Littlefield, and Tammy Hanson.

We encourage you and your students to attend all events
