The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday might have been a day off
for HSU, but 21 students spent the afternoon watching the movie "Selma" to
celebrate and remember its meaning.
Dean of student life Brian Dawson, his family and multicultural
coordinator Yessy Juarez organized the event and accompanied the group.
Zac Christian, sophomore English and History double major
from Comanche, Texas attended the event and said, “I am a big fan of Dr. King
and his views on pacifism. I thought
that going to see Selma would be a wonderful way to celebrate this great man on
the day set to honor him.”
Student Life at Hardin-Simmons University is creating more
co-curricular multicultural programs in order to better the liberal arts
education offered at HSU.
Brian Dawson, Dean of Students said, “Hopefully Selma is a
spark to many conversations. I think that is one of the things that education
is about. A good liberal arts education sparks some debate and ideas in your
mind that you need to go explore.”
Will Hancock, sophomore history major from Plano, Texas
said, “This event really brought forth community, fellowship and diverse
discussion, all of which encompasses HSU as a whole.”
