Remembering Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a Friend, Mentor, and Leader

Early next month marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. With the passing of time, the number of people who knew and worked with the civil rights leader are dwindling. Former College of DuPage administrator Dr. Ernie Gibson is one of those who not only worked with King, the two men were friends. First Light host Brian O'Keefe sat down with Gibson to talk about his mentor and friend.
