In honor of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Jan. 18, 2021, TROY TrojanVision has planned a special day of programming commemorating important moments and people in the history of the civil rights movement in America.
At 11:30 Monday morning, TROY TrojanVision will air TROY and the City of Troy’s 18th annual Leadership Conference. The keynote speaker is Dr.—and now U. S. Senator— Raphael Warnock.
Following this at 12:30 p.m. we’ll have the opening keynote address of the 17th annual Leadership Conference, featuring the late Congressman John Robert Lewis.
These Programs will repeat at 5 and 6 p.m. respectively.
At 7:30 p.m., watch the John Robert Lewis Hall Dedication, an event of Nov. 13, 2020. Lewis, a civil rights icon, served in the U.S. Congress from 1987 until his death in July of 2020. Just a month after his death, Troy University’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously to rename the oldest building on the TROY campus, formerly bearing the name of Alabama Gov. Bibb Graves, in Lewis’ honor.
At 8:30 p.m., TrojanVision will air the 2017 Hall School of Journalism and Communication’s M. Stanton Evans Symposium on Money, Politics and the Media. The speaker at this symposium is Southern Poverty Law Center founder Morris Dees, who presents “With Justice for All in a Changing America.”
Finally, at 10 p.m., we present John Lewis Day, a program of celebration on the naming of a day in Lewis’ honor in the City of Troy.
All times are CST. All of these programs can be viewed online at the following links:
