Nationally-known poet to speak at Monmouth College’s MLK Day celebration

There is an annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration returning to the campus of Monmouth College on Monday, January 20th.  The event begins at 12:00 pm at Monmouth’s Dahl Chapel and Auditorium. The convocation will feature Chicago-native, poet, and spoken-word artist Harold Green. Green possesses a fluidity that has captured audiences across the country. An ever-evolving artist chiefly known as a poet, Green’s ability to bring words to life has expanded beyond the confines of local cafes and bars to performances at festivals, rallies, college campuses across the country, major Chicago music venues and even center stage at the inauguration of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel. The College’s Colorful Voices of Praise dancers will also perform. The College will also sponsor a day of service in the community for Monmouth students
