C.T. Vivian Speech

I am in LAS- 200 this semester. I know that everyone hates LAS-200 because it is required. People think it is pointless and doesn’t have anything to do with their majors, so the class has a pretty bad rep. I came into the class with all of those preconceived thoughts, but the class is actually not that bad.

Last week we were required to go to a lecture by C.T. Vivian. Dr. Vivian was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s right hand man in the civil right s movement. It was actually a great lecture. I felt like I was in the presence of true greatness. Dr. Vivian is 88 years old, but he looks like he’s 60. I was surprised how good he looked especially after all he had been through. The speech was extremely inspirational and I am so glad that I got the chance to hear it. LAS-200 has exceeded my expectations and I am grateful to the university to bring such fantastic speakers here.
