"...let us go out with a grim and bold determination that we are going to stick together. We are going to work together. Right here in Montgomery, when the history books are written in the future somebody will have to say, "There lived a race of people a black people, 'fleecy locks and black complexion’, a people who had the moral courage to stand up for their rights. And thereby they injected a new meaning into the veins of history and of civilization." And we're gonna do that. God grant that we will do it before it is too late. As we proceed with our program let us think of these things. " Martin Luther King Jr ~ 1955 The Montgomery Boycott
Dr. King was an exemplary leader, activist, civil rights, and human rights leader. Today, new leaders are emerging within our own communities and they continue to impact the African American communities in a positive way. An exemplary leader actively seeks to improve the community and provide safe havens for families within those communities.
For the 23rd Anniversary MLK Scholarship luncheon, we will recognize community leaders from each of the Black Greek Lettered Sorority Organization that are legacies in their own right. We will recognize community leaders that continue to create positive social change within African American communities through social advocacy, community outreach, community service, and educational programs. We would like to celebrate the moral courage of each of these individuals for taking a stand within their communities
