Peponi

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

DePauw student, Ariel Cheatham performed a dance titled "Peponi" on Saturday at the Putnam County Public Library. She along with six others spoke at a celebration for Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. King dedicated his life to making sure people had equal treatment and did so on the platform of non-violence. Sections of King's works: Letter from Birmingham City Jail and I Have a Dream were read aloud to audience members.

The band included performers Jonathan January, Cliff Gammon, Bob Gammon, Steve Worthington, Susan Thomas, Chris Trigg and Mark Minnick. [Order this photo]
