Olivet College to feature Martin Luther King Jr. speaker Jan. 18
Jan 05, 2012

Edward “Champ” Hall, a motivational speaker who specializes in reenacting speeches delivered by Martin Luther King Jr., will present as part of Olivet College’s Lecture & Symposium Series Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 1:30 p.m. in Mott Auditorium. The event, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the college’s Office of Multicultural Affairs.

Hall has been captivating audiences by reciting some of King’s most famous speeches for more than 20 years. Though he was only four years old when the civil rights leader was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn., in 1968, the event would impact Hall’s entire life and career. “King is a political icon and his messages must not be lost,” Hall says. “I hope to aid in remembering Martin Luther King Jr. and all he has done for this great nation.”

In addition to frequent engagements at schools, colleges and churches, Hall has been invited to speak on behalf of small businesses at the U.S. Capitol and to address the state House of Representatives in Harrisburg, Pa. He has been featured in publications including USA Today, and has been honored numerous times for his success in business and outstanding dedication to youth.

For more information on the lecture, contact Mary Anne McMullen, director of special events, at (269) 749-7131 or mmcmullen@olivetcollege.edu.
