Martin Luther Let Freedom ALICE HARDING King: MINDY CLINARD Ring As co-ed dorms, a no-curfew policy and two-hour seminar classes become reality, M-AC is gradually taking its place as a four-year institution. A few Just recently v/e were blessed to have a great speaker, R. B. Wilkins, come and remind us of one of America's great leaders, Martin Luther King Jr. R. B. graduated from Montreat with an A.S. degree and then received his B.A. degree from Lenoir Rhyne College. He then attended Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he became the first black to become Student Body President. He is currently the minister at East Grimes Avenue Baptist Church In High Point, North Carolina. R, B. Wilkins gave, us a vei7’ dramatic reading of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream". It was very powerful and intense with emotion. King held on to his dream and it has eventually led to greater peace between all races. There will always be racial tension but there is so much we have accomplished and we’ve done so much in letting freedom ring. If King were alive now he would probably be amazed at how far we have come. His dream has come true and we do walk hand in hand. King had a dream, that dream lives on in many hearts today, I pray that we too will carry that dream in our hearts and do our best to fulfil! it in our lives. "Free at last! Free at lasti Thank God Almighty we are free at last!" years ago, the thought that a dorm would be locked through a combination known to its residents, who could enter or leave under their own discretion, was far from conceiveable here at Montreat.
