Celebration to Let Freedom Ring!
Date and TimeWednesday, August 28, 2013
- Carillon Tower (Allendale and Pew Campus)
Grand Valley State University will join institutions and organizations across America to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of The March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The “Let Freedom Ring” bell ringing event will begin at 3:00 pm on August 28th, a half-century after Dr. King delivered his historic address. The Carillon Towers on the Allendale and Pew campuses will ring for 15 seconds at which time we invite all faculty, staff and students to pause to remember and reflect upon Dr. King’s dream of a nation united in justice, compassion, and goodwill to all.
