In celebration of Black History Month, Valley City State University will present Stephon Ferguson in a tribute performance recognizing the work and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., on Monday, Feb. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in Vangstad Auditorium on the VCSU campus.
A minister, inspirational speaker and performing artist based in Atlanta, Ferguson will portray Martin Luther King, Jr., and share King’s own words; speak on racial equality in the United States; and participate in a discussion with audience members.
“We encourage all to attend this important event,” says Joey Marini, VCSU diversity and inclusion coordinator. “Our goals include initiating dialogue, sharing perspectives, and helping each of us find our own voice in confronting and dealing with the challenging realities we face in our communities and our country. Mr. Ferguson’s inspiring message and commanding presence will help facilitate the greater understanding we strive for in dealing with issues of diversity and inclusion every day.”
Sponsored by VCSU Diversity and Inclusion, Student Senate, Residence Life and the Office of Student Affairs, the event is open to the public free of charge.
