Marc Lamont Hill talks Martin Luther King Jr. at RIT

HENRIETTA, NY (WROC) - A New York Times bestselling author appeared at RIT on Thursday to speak with students about Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.

Marc Lamont Hill is a professor at Temple University. He says young people should learn from Dr. King's struggle and his message.

"Dr. King's message prepares young people for the future because it reminds them that the future won't happen without their effort, without their work," explains Hill. "History doesn't just happen, it takes effort. It takes struggle. It takes commitment. It takes planning. Those are the things that Dr. King's legacy offers."

Hill says he hopes students learn that the world can change, but they must take action and work hard.
