Remembering Brother King
49th Anniversary of MLK’s death

Members of Alabama State University student government and Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity laid a wreath on campus to remember Martin Luther King Jr. on the 49th anniversary of his death.

King, a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, studied for his doctorate on ASU’s campus during the civil rights movement. He also gave the commencement speech in 1954.

“I pray that (King’s) dream continue to live on through us,” said Shane Parks, SGA president.

King was assassinated in Memphis on April 4, 1968.
