KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Western Michigan University will be remembering Doctor Martin Luther King's visit to the campus early next month. Director of Recruitment and Retention in the graduate College Tony Dennis says that Martin Luther King spoke at WMU in 1963, and his speech covered a wide range of topics, from racial equality to nuclear war
On December second, there will be a noon gathering at the North Ballroom of the Bernhard Center, where they'll listen to bits of King's speech, and hear from Western Alum grad and talk show host Ed Gordon. Dennis says the whole community is welcome, and the event is free.
Known locally as "The Lost Tape," a partial audio recording of Doctor's King's Kalamazoo speech and post speech remarks surfaced in 1997, after having been missing for decades.
