Martin Luther King Commemoration at Utah Valley University

Civil Rights in Utah media was the topic of the meeting. Out of all of the people who spoke at this meeting there was one who stuck out to me the most and that person was Albert Jones. He is a journalist and has worked for six different newspapers. The reason why he stuck out to me was not only his friendliness but because I felt that he had passion for our country and for the state of Utah. He talked about how we need to treat others the same no matter what color or race the person is. He mentioned how the newspaper, USA Today a national daily newspaper is a diverse newspaper ever since the first day they started in 1982. I agree that we should treat everyone the same no matter what race they are. This is a free country and we need to let people enjoy their freedom in this country by being respectful no matter what race they are.

  1. You're off to a good start, but I would like to hear more from you on future posts. Why is this relevant? How did the things discussed in the panel relate to our class, or even your life? Why do issues like stereotypes and racism matter?
