SU March for Humanity to honor Charleston Nine, MLK legacy
The 29th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. March for Humanity is Jan. 28 at Shippensburg University. The event, open to the public, will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Ceddia Union Building.
The Reverend Dr. Mark Tyler, pastor of Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, is the guest speaker. Tyler is an activist, advocate, teacher and historian who works within the Hate Won’t Win movement. he is also curator of the African Methodist Episcopal Church Museum housed at the Mother Bethel church.
This year’s events, with the theme of “hate won’t win,” will include a tribute to the Charleston Nine, who were killed in a mass shooting at Mother Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C., last June.
The march is intended as a way for students, faculty and staff to stand together in solidarity against the injustices that continue to pervade our society. Diane Jefferson, director of the multicultural student affairs office, described the Charleston Nine as “a group of people who did not answer hate with hate. They answered hate with love and I think that speaks to MLK’s legacy. Whatever the hate crime, whatever the motivation, it’s going to take a multiracial coalition of folks to address the issue.”
The March for Humanity is an annual event sponsored by the university’s African American Organization in conjunction with the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs.
