HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Students and community members enjoyed High Point University's annual MLK Jr. Service Monday.
The service featured a message from the Rev. Dr. Eboni Marshall Turman, assistant research professor of Black Church Studies at Duke University Divinity School.
The university said Turman's service focused on justice, and the need for all to seek justice for any person marginalized for any reason, whether it be race, gender, economic status, or political affiliation.
Soloist Dr. Louise Toppin, chair of the Voice Department at UNC-Chapel Hill also provided music for the service.
While classes were canceled Monday, High Point University students and faculty volunteered more than 1,200 hours to the community through their "Day On, Not Off" project. One of the project included serving meals to those in need in the High Point area.
