Americans must live together as brothers

A Reflection Of
Dr. Martm Luther King
By Dojer James, Jr.
Dr. Charles V. Willie, a Harvard Univer
sity Professor and distinguished
writer/sociologist was the guest speaker at
WSSU’s birthday celebration of slain civil
rights activist. Dr. Martin Luther King.
This lecture was given as a part of the
Joseph N. Patterson Lecturer Series held on
Sunday, January 13,1985.
In reminiscing, Dr. Willie remembered
King, his former schoolmate as a
“fun-loving guy,” a Nobel Peace Prize win
ner, and a leader of men.” Some say that
King was ahead of his time, but the speaker
remembered the words of the late, Dr.
Mays, former president of Morehouse Col
lege at King’s euology; “Every man is
within his own time. Each man responds to
the calling of the Lord in his time, not so
meone elses.” Willie then remembered that
King had received the respect of his peers
and his elders at the age of 21.
Mays said, “King seems to know where he
wants to go and how to get there.”
Dr. Willie saw King’s dream fulfilled; he
saw the manifestations of love and mercy;
the beginning of reconcilliation; the peace
and hope for tomorrow as he quoted him
saying. “Like anybody, I would like to live a
long life, longevity has its place, but I’m not
concerned about that now. I just want to do
Grod’s will. He’s allowed me to go up to the
mountain and I’ve looked over, and I’ve
seen the promised land. I may not get there
with Him, but I won’t you to know tonight,
that we the people will get to the promised
land. I’m not worried about anything. Mine
eyes have seen the glory of the coming of
of the Year
