The Community of Holy Rosary and St. John the Evangelist is hosting its annual Martin Luther King Day celebration on Monday, January 15, 2024 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Holy Rosary-St. John Church, 660 South Ohio Avenue (between Main and Livingston), Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Andre Brown, Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University, will be the speaker. Everyone is welcome!
Dr. Andre Brown is a scholar of historically Black Greek-lettered organizations and racial identity development who has worked as a student affairs professional at numerous universities for the past two decades. Dr. Brown has numerous scholarly publications and conference presentations on historically Black Greek-lettered organizations and the impact of college on Black male students. He is also a parishioner at Holy Rosary-St. John Church.
Dr. Brown shared his excitement at being chosen as this year’s speaker for the Holy Rosary-St. John Martin Luther King Day event: "It is truly an honor and privilege for me to speak about the life and legacy of one of my personal heroes, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In my speech, I will discuss the relevance of Dr. King's dream in contemporary times and how we, as a church community, can come together to learn and serve. As King mentioned in his historic 1963 address at the Lincoln Memorial, 'We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.'"
Holy Rosary-St. John has been celebrating Martin Luther King Day every year since the holiday was established in 1986. Vernon Hairston will be directing the gospel choir during the celebration. For additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (614) 252-5926, ext. 7.
