Crozer-Keystone Remembers Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Crozer-Chester Medical Center hosted a special celebration in remembrance of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for employees and members of the local community on Jan. 18 in the medical center’s James E. Clark Education Center.
The celebration began with remarks by Joseph Saunders, president of Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Staff and students involved with Crozer-Keystone’s Wellness Center, which coordinates and provides outreach programs that promote the overall health and wellness of the young people of Chester, spoke about how Dr. King’s legacy relates to their efforts. In addition, the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas Gospel Choir of Philadelphia performed two songs.
The Crozer Theological Seminary, where Dr. King earned his divinity degree in 1951, was formerly located on Crozer’s campus. It was at Crozer that King developed his ideas about nonviolence as a method of social reform.
