Albany State University students and faculty paused today to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior.

Thursday morning, a standing room only crowd of students and faculty packed the Albany State auditorium for their annual King Convocation. Students sang spiritual music and acted out monologues to pass down the stories and history of the civil rights era. Many Albany State students played important roles in that history.

Amber Bennett, a senior accounting major from Cairo said "It's very interesting because not only was Albany State the center of the civil rights movement on our campus, but we had a lot history as far as students getting expelled. "

The speaker at the King convocation was Chaplain Kenneth Miller from the Albany Marine Corps Logistics base.
