Remembering MLK Jr.

MLK-DayLast month, Penn Presbyterian continued its 46-year tradition of commemorating the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On January 15th, members of the Department of Pastoral Care and the Cultural Diversity Committee presented a musical tribute at 16 nursing stations and waiting areas. Over 350 staff, patients, and visitors heard words from historic speeches and verses from the songs, “We Shall Overcome,” “If I Can Help Somebody” and “This Little Light of Mine.” Musical accompaniment was provided by Dr. Bryan Muller, a music therapist. The program drew connections between Dr. King’s legacy and work of the hospital for healing and health in the community.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who helped coordinate and participated in memorial activities.
