County College of Morris Celebrates Black History Month
In celebration of Black History Month, County College of Morris (CCM) has scheduled an exceptional performance with actor James Lucas.
â€śReflections: The Life and Times of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,â€ť featuring Lucas, will take place online and premier on CCMâ€™s YouTube channel Tuesday, February 23, at 7:30 p.m. To view this free one-time premier, go to www.ccm.edu/black-history-month/.
Donâ€™t miss Lucasâ€™s powerful and insightful reflection on the civil rights movement as seen through the eyes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.Â Lucas is well known for his portrayals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who became a driving force for the nonviolent struggle against racism and inequality. Lucas travels the country giving his powerful renditions of Kingâ€™s â€śI Have a Dream,â€ť and â€śIâ€™ve Been to the Mountaintopâ€ť speeches and other one-man performances of the civil rights leader. President Bill Clinton described Lucasâ€™ portrayal, â€śThe most authentic and exhilarating King I have ever seen.â€ť
The program also will feature a prerecorded question and answer session hosted by Professor John Williford, chair of the Department of Psychology and Education at CCM.
This Black History Month Recognition program is co-hosted by the Department of Campus Life and Special Events.
