Antioch College will present “Walk It with You: The Courage of Coretta Scott King,” its annual community commemoration of the civil rights pioneer, on Tuesday, April 25, 7 p.m., at the Foundry Theater at Antioch College. The event commemorates the legacy of Coretta Scott King, an Antioch College alumna, and the ongoing importance of her work to the Antioch community and beyond.

The Rev. Dr. Crystal Walker, executive director of the Greater Dayton Christian Connection, will be the guest speaker. The Rev. Dr. Walker is active in fostering social justice throughout the greater Dayton area, working with efforts in domestic violence training and counseling, race relations, mass incarceration, revising death penalty laws, gun violence legislation, immigration reform, prison ministry, discrimination laws, human trafficking and other issues. She is the recipient of various awards, including the Coretta Scott King Award from the Dayton Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Marsha Froelich Survivor Award from the Y.W.C.A. of Greater Dayton. 

The World House Choir will perform during the commemoration, and the second annual Coretta Scott King Student of Change Award will be presented. The event is free and open to the public.
