Journals - Martin Luther King, Jr. 
Parties, Platforms, & Promises videoconference 
The Contemporary Issues through Videoconferencing class was excited to discuss the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Dr. Frank Dobson, PhD. Dr. Dobson is Director of the Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center and Faculty Head of House of Gillette House at Vanderbilt University.

He is a published and award-winning author. He spoke to CITVC students about the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King envisioned the goal "to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood" (I Have A Dream speech). His vision is still a work in progress today.

"Talking with Dr. Dobson about Martin Luther King's legacy was very informative. He spoke to us how his legacy is still very much alive today, but imparted to us that it is our responsibility to carry on the dream that we "will one day live in a nation where they [children] will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."  -Karinna
