Under a photo of late South African civil rights leader Nelson Mandela, Aurora University senior Crystal Hart (right) reflected on Mandela's legacy at an M.L. King Day celebration. "King and Mandela: Legacy of Peace," staged by AU students and faculty, drew hundreds to the university's Crimi Auditorium. The program included remarks by university president Rebecca L. Sherrick, readings and reflections by students and music by the university chorale. Lisa Fredenburgh, university Director of Choral and Vocal Activities and Chair, Music Department, conducted the chorale and led all in singing "Lift Every Voice and Sing" to close the event.
