Students Will Perform Professor's Adaptation to Honor King


Camden County College will honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a dramatic spoken-word presentation featuring CCC students on Jan. 21.


The official observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day was Jan. 17. However, the College is conducting its annual tribute to the slain civil rights leader on the Friday after to coincide with students’ return to campus for the spring semester.


“In His Own Words: The Dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” will be presented at 11 a.m. Jan. 21 in Civic Hall, which is located inside the Connector Building on CCC’s Blackwood Campus in Gloucester Township.


The program is an original production that was adapted and directed by CCC Professor Allison Green using King’s own speeches and writings. It is being presented by the Visual, Performing and Communication Arts Department and the Readers’ Theatre Project of American Literature. It is being sponsored by the Office of Student Life and Activities.


Admission to “In His Own Words: The Dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” is free. Members of the public – including large groups – are invited to attend, but advance reservations are required.


To schedule attendance of a group, to reserve an individual seat or for additional details, prospective attendees should contact Assistant to the Dean of Students Jacqueline Tenuto in CCC’s Office of Student Life and Activities by telephone at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4282, or via e-mail at
