Snow and rain may stop them from going to class, but nothing can stop BYU students from commemorating the life of Martin Luther King Jr.
With candles in their hands and songs in the air, hundreds of families, friends, students and professors gathered under the Bell Tower to honor King’s mission and achievement on Monday evening as part of the “Walk of Life” candlelight procession, followed by a memorial program featuring a BYU student gospel choir, an excerpt of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and keynote speaker Darius Gray, a broadcast journalist, author and former president of the Genesis Group.
