UC Irvine Vice Chancellor reflects on Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy

 

Thomas Parham is a successful African American living and working in the city of his choice, but that wouldn't be so without Martin Luther King Jr.'s struggle for equal rights, he said.

 

Parham, an Irvine resident, is vice chancellor of student affairs for UC Irvine, has three college degrees and has published several books. His accolades are too numerous to print.

 

For him, Martin Luther King Jr. Day this Monday is a chance to give thanks for what King and others like him did for African Americans and to reflect on what he can personally do to continue that legacy. He's already done a lot, especially with 100 Black Men of Orange County, but more on that later.

 

The Register interviewed Parham about Martin Luther King Jr. and the local black community just before he flew out to Washington, D.C., where he will attend the inauguration of President Barack Obama.
