SUNY Oswego’s Jan. 29 Martin Luther King Jr. celebration featured Bernice A. King (pictured below), daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and chief executive of the King Center, and Grammy-winning gospel singer Smokie Norful. King’s speech acknowledged the impact of her father’s legacy and its relevance to social movements today. She reflected upon her father’s idea of shifting to a “person-driven society from a profit-driven society,” and that securing the well-being of people would naturally eradicate racism, poverty and other social ills.
