Where Do We Go From Here?
The inauguration of the first African-American president of the United States highlights Alma College’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Week Celebration Jan. 18 through 23. The original speaker, Spencer Overton, postponed his scheduled Jan. 19 campus appearance because of his appointment to the Obama Transition Team. Overton’s keynote speech at Alma has been rescheduled for Feb. 2 in the Remick Heritage Center.
