Martin Luther King Jr. is a civil rights icon whose life and works are known to many. However, a college administrator will discuss King’s life and more than a dozen additional facts to fill in the picture we have of this complex human being.
Bill Thierfelder, president of Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, N.C., “will delve a little deeper into the man and his legacy, and to see why his story is still so meaningful and relevant to our own lives today,” according to a news release from the Multnomah County Library.
The presentation will be 3-4:30 p.m. Jan. 13 at the Kenton Library, 8226 N. Denver Ave. It is free but advance registration is required: www.multcolib.org or 503-988-5123 or in the library. Support for the event comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of the Library Foundation.
