Hunter Library Honors Martin Luther King in Display

For the month of January, Hunter Library invites you to come and see our display on the life, work and times of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Located on our main floor (adjoining the Hunter Computer Lab), our display includes photographs, quotes and poetry concerning King’s dream and accomplishments. A timeline of the Civil Rights Movement places these accomplishments in historical perspective, and various books from both Hunter Library and from private collections are featured.

A listing of University and community-sponsored MLK events is also on display; for an electronic version, visit Western’s home page at http://www.wcu.edu/.
