Civil Rights Historian to be Keynote Speaker for 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration

Civil rights historian Bobby Donaldson, Ph.D., who has contributed to several projects and documentaries on the era, will be the keynote speaker for the 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration presented by Aiken Technical College (ATC) and University of South Carolina Aiken (USC Aiken) on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. in the USC Aiken Convocation Center.

Donaldson is an associate history professor and director of the Center for Civil Rights History and Research at the University of South Carolina.

He will speak on the event’s theme, based on a quote by Dr. King: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Donaldson, an Augusta, Ga. native, has received numerous awards and honors for his work including the Helen Kohn Henning Prize from the Historic Columbia Foundation; a Michael J. Mungo Undergraduate Teaching Award; the John N. Gardener Inspirational Faculty Award; and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Social Justice Award.

He has also been recognized by the South Carolina House of Representatives for his teaching, research and community efforts as well as a recipient of the South Carolina Governor’s Award in Historic Preservation and the South Carolina Governor’s Humanities Award.

“Dr. Donaldson is a dynamic speaker and will speak to the theme from a historical perspective while ensuring the theme is relevant. This promises to be another spectacular program for the entire community as we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” stated Stephanie Franklin, chair of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration committee.

The event will be free and open to the public.
