CU sets MLK Day events

January 15, 2013

In several events, Clemson University will mark the Martin Luther King Junior Day on Monday next week. The events include a day of community service and the annual MLK Commemorative Services that features David Hilliard as keynote speaker at 6 p-m Tuesday, January 22 at Tillman Hall Auditorium.  Hilliard was a founding member and former chief of the Black Panther Party and today is an author and lecturer. By the early 1970s, the Black Panthers were a nationwide group that provided free food, medicine and legal services to the inner city poor. But the FBI Director, J-Edgar Hoover, labeled the Panthers “the greatest threat to the internal security of the United States.” University volunteers will spend Monday morning working with agencies throughout the community, including Clemson Child Development Center, the Animal Rescue Fund, Collins Children Home, Our Daily Bread and Sterling House. As part of a day of service, the Blood Connection will hold a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 6 p-m in the Hendrix Student Center meeting room.
