Butler’s Service Learning students are planning a day of service in Augusta on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (This Monday, Jan. 17) that will culminate in a public viewing of “Dockum Sit-In: A Legacy of Courage” at the historic Augusta Theatre. The film covers the true story of the drugstore sit-in that took place in Wichita during the U.S. civil rights movement.
This event also kicks off a 90-day “spring of service” in the community that will end with a day of service on Global Youth Service Day, April 16, 2011.
Check out the story at The Augusta Gazette.

“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.
You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.
You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
