Time Out Says

Queens College's commemoration, "We Are Not Satisfied: There is a Long, Long Way to Go in the Footsteps of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." will celebrate King’s legacy in a free, virtual presentation on Sunday, January 16, at 3pm. The event will evoke King’s May 13, 1965, appearance as the inaugural speaker in the college’s John F. Kennedy Memorial Lecture Series, where he emphasized the power of peaceful resistance in his address to students. Trey McLaughlin and The Sounds of Zamar, a choir from Augusta, Georgia, will perform, and in a video made for the occasion, five alumni who attended King’s speech will share their memories of the event.
