“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr
Every year on the wintry Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a fire is kindled on High Point University’s campus. The Hayworth Chapel hosts a Martin Luther King, Jr. Service to honor the life and work of the late social activist and preacher. The service hosts a noted speaker, gospel choir, special musical direction by Dr. Louise Toppin, Chair of the Voice Department at UNC-Chapel Hill, and is paired with service community service projects throughout the day that are in the spirit of the “Beloved Kingdom” for which King strove.
