Noted educator and Civil Rights leader Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr. is on campus this week as a part of our Martin Luther King, Jr. week. I caught a part of Dr. LaFayette’s talk in the MXIBS to a more than a standing room only crowd. His memory is impressive and his systematic approach to change within a non-violence context was incredible.
But there was more…much more.
Dr. LaFayette started by telling the students that he had taken a look around Wabash and he felt Wabash was a great place to be. He told them Wabash is a good thing – take advantage of all this place has to offer. In another segment he explained that he always did the research before taking on a new venture and they (the students) would be wise to do the same. Sage advice from a man who made a huge difference while literally making history.
Speaking of legendary history making, Jasmine Robinson attended the luncheon/lecture and she continues to do what she has always done – help young men grow and prosper. Here she offers some advice to one of our students.
