MLK Worship ServiceSpelman College Sisters Chapel will recognize the 31st Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a special worship service at 11 a.m., Sunday, Jan. 17, featuring keynote speaker Rev. Dr. Robert M. Franklin, Jr., president emeritus of Morehouse College and professor of moral leadership at Emory University Candler School Theology. 

Dr. Franklin will deliver the sermon, “Where Should We Go From Here,” based on Dr. King’s seminal 1967 book “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” He will use the opportunity to address challenges of the time such as racism, gender inequity, and the need for moral leadership in all sectors of society.

Following worship service, there will be an interfaith harmony march and rally departing from Sisters Chapel at 2 p.m. to the Martin Luther King, Jr. statue on the campus of Morehouse.

The Atlanta community is invited to attend the worship service and march/rally.
