Worship speaker challenges audience to follow King’s example by Susan Finley On Wednesday, Jan. 13, stu dents g^ered in Jones Chapel for a morning worship service com memorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The event was sponsored by the Association of Black Aware ness of Meredith as part of a week of activities in honor of King. TTie service was conducted by various members of ABA, and a message focusing on King’s ac complishments was delivered by guest speaker Margaret Pollard. Pollard referred to King as “the father of moral and spiritual identity.” She reminded the audi ence that King’s actions were in spired by many others, including Ghandi, Thoreau and Benjamine May, the president of King’s alma mater. Pollard described the social condi tions of King’s life as a time when “many southern service stations were olf limits to black people.” Pollard also pointed out thatschools, restrooms and even water fountains were segregated. In view of this context, Pollard called King a man of “vision” because “he saw a new way of re^nding to social conditions.” Pollard, who is originally from Moncure, N.C., completed both her B.S. and Masters’ degrees at North Carolina Cential University. She is currentiy the Director of Public Healtii and Wellness of the Wake Area Health Education Center. In addition to recounting many of the milestones of the civil rights move ment, Pollard related these events to the problems women are struggling with today. She encouraged women to act, just as King did, to change society. “Pertiaps it is time forwomen to put their feet down,” Pollard said. “Visualize acountry where fwo- ductivity and not gender determine pay scale,” she said. Pollard pointed out that King had a definite world vision, and that he “abhored violence.” She then encouraged Meredith students to “formalize [their] vision of a better America.” Pollard called on Meredith stu dents to help clean up the environ ment, and to work with the home less and impoverished. While Pollard pointed out that King’s actions stemmed from a dif ferent context, she insisted that there is still a need for social change which may require personal sacrifice. “You may not be callcd on to risk your life, but again, a worth while vision may cost you some thing,” Pollard said. King prayer breakfast emphasizes spirituality of King's message by Belh Lowry The Association for Black Awareness and the Meredith Christian Associatinco-sponsored the Martin Luther King prayer breakfast on Wednesday, January 13. According to event organizer, Neasha Bryant, the breakfast was a great success. "The ladies who spoke challenged us to find out what we could do to further carry on the dream." Bryant said. Students, faculty members, and administratin took their trays to the President’s Dining Room to reflect on and to discuss Dr. King’s work. Grace Dalton, Associate Campus Minister, and Eleanor Nunn, advisor to African- American students interpreted King’s life-long vision and talked about what we can do today to continue King’s goals toward equality for all people.
