Rev. Dr. King used a widely accepted perspective of Christianity along side pre-expressed ideas written by Thomas Jefferson (a founding father and past President of the United States) inspired by John Locke (admired English philosopher), to change the hearts and minds of people of many generations. King's actions and words along with the millions of other civil rights activist lead to not only the change of laws on racial equality but it helped create a since of deserved equality on all levels for people in the United States.

In honor of the wonderful man and all that he has done for their country, Young Harris College's Inter-Religous Council and Student Government Association has invited speaker Alisha Thomas Morgan, a member of the Georgia House of Representatives to speak to students. The event will take place in the Campus Chapel at 7:30 pm, tonight.

Morgan's goals according to her official website http://www.alishamorgan.com/ is to ensure the availability of quality education to every child.

Morgan is a wonderful candidate to speak for a MLK because not only is she a member of the African American community but she is female. She has insight on two communities in which equality was not reached in the United States and had to be and still are being fought for. It is also appropriate for her to come to a Liberal Arts college and express her views and educate students because of her views on education.
