The service included songs, prayers, and readings from King’s speeches. The program was divided into two portions, remembering his life and his lasting legacy. Portions of the service were led by leaders of various University and community organizations, including King’s fellow Alpha Phi Alpha brothers, who sang their fraternity song and prayer in his memory.
