Savannah State University is remembering the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today. A full house packed into the King-Frazier Student Center ballroom to reflect on Dr. King's legacy. Savannah mayor Otis Johnson spoke to the audience; his message for students was to prepare for the future.
He tied Dr. King's civil rights fight to the city's fight against crime. "You don't know where fate will take your life, and Dr. King's life is a perfect example of that," he said. "We need to look at poverty and poor education and all the things people don't want to deal with as root causes of crime."
We also want to remind you to tune in Monday morning at 10am for our live coverage of the Martin Luther King, Jr., parade. WTOC's Dmitra Denmark and Dawn Baker, along with WSOK's E. Larry McDuffie, will bring us all the excitement. That's Monday, January 16 at 10am.
