|Black history month celebration features Rogers|
Nationally renowned speaker Joe Rogers will speak at Louisiana Delta Community College's black history month celebrations on Feb. 29.
This year's event will begin at 10 a.m. on the second floor of the ULM Student Union. It will include an event to honor Dr. Carter G. Woodson, an African-American educator known as the "father of black history."
Rogers, a former Colorado lieutenant governor and only the fourth African-American ever elected to that office, will bring his "Dream Alive Program" to Delta and ULM, whose student government associations are jointly sponsoring the celebration.
A recipient of the prestigious Trumpet Award, Rogers is described by The New York Times as "young, articulate, energetic, and well-prepared. Something happens when Rogers speaks. People who have seen the presentation say it's uncanny, as if Dr. King is in the room."
The program also will feature performances by the Neville High School varsity speech squad and the Carroll High School choir.
Fourth grade students from Barkdull Faulk Elementary will lead the pledge of allegiance. The Ouachita Parish High School ROTC will present the colors.
"Last year we were fortunate to have a great speaker, and this year I believe our students, faculty, and community will enjoy Mr. Joe Rogers," said Delta SGA President Cleartis Norris. "It is heartwarming when we can take a moment to reflect on where we were and the possibilities of the future, not just as an African-American, but as an American."
Past winners of the Trumpet Award include Rosa Parks, Muhammad Ali, Condoleezza Rice and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
Rogers' Dream Alive Program is described as a "live commentary in dedication to the memory and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and leaders of the civil rights movement."
