OUSC celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King day

Posted: Updated:

The celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King day carried on Monday evening at Ohio University Southern Campus in Ironton.

The program was filled with commemorative readings as families with their children and grandchildren learned the importance of remembering the works of Dr. King.

Music from local gospel groups filled the auditorium as well as artistic dancing.

Some say it was a great learning opportunity for children.

"It was a wonderful experience for the children. My granddaughter asked who is that when she was looking at the picture an I told her that's Dr. Martin Luther King, civil rights leader, and then she seemed to pay more attention." Barbara Linthicum of Burlington said.

The celebration continues this week with a Brown Bag Concert Series in Ironton on Wednesday at noon, and a brunch and lecture at the Proctorville center from 11 a.m. till 12:30 p.m.
