The Daily Pennsylvanian :: John Legend talks social justice at Irvine.

In a small backstage room at Irvine Auditorium, 1999 College graduate John Legend sat down without hesitation, happy to meet a group of reporters before the evening’s events. Though he was about to face a packed house, he spoke smoothly, almost as if he were humming one of his songs.

Last night, Legend joined Camille Charles, director of the Center for Africana Studies, to deliver the 12th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Lecture in Social Justice. The event was part of an annual symposium, sponsored by the Center for Africana Studies, to honor black Americans dedicated to positive social change.
