In October 2007, the first-year scholars of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholars Program took a trip to the south for the program's annual Civil Rights Tour. During their trip, these students visited the sites of the era's most recognized events and met with influential leaders from the civil rights movement.

Inspired by their experience, the scholars have written and produced an interactive theater program to bring what they've learned to the campus community. Come see this breath-taking production at 4:00 or 5:40 p.m. January 21, 2008, in the Emerson Suites and go on a trip through the Civil Rights Era with the MLK Scholars. You'll witness a sit-in at a local diner, listen to the words of Emmitt Till, a 14-year old boy whose death energized the movement, and experience much more. This is an experience you will not want to miss.

Don't forget to go online to to pre-register to attend any of the events scheduled for Monday, January 21, 2008.
