KING COMMEMORATED--Christopher Edley Jr. (left), the first African-American dean to lead a top-ranked U.S. law school, talks with J. R. Santana Carter '04 after delivering this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Address at the University on January 23. In his talk, Edley addressed "The New Civil Rights Agenda" and the relationship between race and politics.

René Herbert '06, a health and society major from Trinidad and a member of the College Diversity Roundtable, introduced Edley during the talk and says his message is a powerful reminder that we all have an individual responsibility to promote and embrace diversity. "Diversity starts with the individual and with having respect for the different points of view we all bring to situations in life," says Herbert.

After the talk, Edley took questions from students and faculty at an invitation-only dinner at the Meliora. The Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Address is sponsored by the Office of the President and the College Diversity Roundtable.
