33rd Annual MLK Ceremony Celebrates King's Dream

Published February 2005

The memory and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was honored at the 33rd annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ceremony, Friday, Jan. 14, at Kresge Auditorium in the UC College of Medicine.

An audience of 200 listened to keynote speaker Ken Hanover, CEO of the Health Alliance, present a personal, introspective reflection of his awakening to the racial division that Dr. King fought to reconcile.

Kenneth Davis, MD, vice chairman of the Department of Surgery at the UC College of Medicine, was one of four scholarship recipients whose actions have served to foster the guiding principles and philosophies of Dr. King. Other recipients were Stacie Doyle, University Hospital's Barrett Cancer Center; Tijuane Martin, the Health Alliance; and Angela Mullins, The Christ Hospital.

In addition to Hanover's speech, the MLK Choir performed several inspirational songs that brought the audience to its feet.
