Martin Luther King III reflected upon his family’s steadfast dedication to activism, as he spoke to the University of Chicago community during its MLK Commemoration Celebration. Mr. King said he was honored to deliver the keynote address on Jan. 30 at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, from the same pulpit where his father first spoke in 1956. The evening also included performances by Uniting Voices Chicago, formerly known as the Chicago Children’s Choir. In keeping with annual tradition, their repertoire included a stirring rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
