MLK-inspired Week of Service begins Monday

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

To honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Campbell University students will once again dedicate a week to service starting Monday, the day the entire nation will honor the late civil rights leader.
