Dr. Alveda King

CLARION — Clarion University's Mary L. Seifert Cultural Series — "Realities of Race" — continued on Monday with a presentation of "The True Meaning of the Dream" by Dr. Alveda King.

The series, according to Clarion University's website, "was established to provide the Clarion University community with cultural experiences that inspire learning through thoughtful discussions."

And King knows a thing or two about cultural experiences, being the niece of famous civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

He led the civil rights movement of the 20th century, around which Alveda King grew up.

She became active in that movement as well.
