Darton recognizes MLK legacy

January 18, 2006

Albany -- Darton College students, most of whom were not alive when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led his Civil Rights crusade, celebrated his legacy today.

A small group attended Darton's annual M.L.K. address. Kenneth Cutts, district director for Congressman Sanford Bishop, was the keynote speaker.

Cutts said today's young people need to learn about Dr. King's teachings, especially his belief in education.

"And that no matter where you come from in life, education can be the great equalizer. It can help you to improve your life,"said speaker Kenneth Cutts.

Darton College held events yesterday and today to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior.
