SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah State University honored the late Martin Luther King, Jr. Thursday night.

Ja A. Jahannes, a behavioral neuroscientist, writer, spoken word artist, composer, psychologist and educator, was the guest speaker at Thursday night's event.

He spoke of the importance of young people taking the time to remember the great leaders of the past.

"I think the young people are the voices and the marchers of the future, so we need to hear the rhythms of their lives as we move forward to what King called a beloved community," said Jahannes. "I called it an undiscovered country."

Immediately following the program, the SSU Delta Eta chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. honored the life of one of the fraternity's most distinguished members during their annual candlelight vigil.
