The MetroHealth System and Cuyahoga Community College Partner to Launch Year of Programs Dedicated to Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. The MetroHealth System and Cuyahoga Community College will host a series of programs in honor of Rev. King and his commitment to social and economic justice.
The first event is The Dream Endures, a conversation between Leon Bibb and the Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, Jr. The event will be held Tuesday, June 19, at 4:00 p.m. in Scott Auditorium at MetroHealth’s main campus, 2500 MetroHealth Drive, Cleveland, Ohio.
Rev. Moss, the pastor emeritus of Olivet Institutional Baptist Church, is a lifelong civil rights activist who knew and worked with Dr. King. Mr. Bibb is nationally known for forging the way for African American journalists in print and broadcasting.
The two will discuss Dr. King’s memory and legacy 50 years after his death, and what still needs to be done to fully achieve his famous dream.
Registration is free, but required. RSVP by June 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org
The event is free and open to the public.
