First time ISU students hold candlelight vigil for Martin Luther King Jr.


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Tonight students gathered near the fountain at ISU for a candle light vigil for Dr. King.

We talked with one organizer who says he’s proud to see his fellow sycamores come out in the cold temps. Some students even gave words of wisdom to their peers.

“This is something that’s important to have so that we never forget Dr. King’s legacy and Martin Luther King’s journey that he took to fight for all of us for social justice and financial inclusion and racial equality,” Tevin Rodgers, president of the Nat’l Association of Black Accountants, said.

“At the end of the day, if we all come together we can overcome anything, so today, I hope that everybody learns that unity is very important,” student Brandon Johnson said.

ISU’s Nat’l Association of Black Accountants organized the event.
