The College Celebrates Black History Month

Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences embraces an increasingly diverse society and a shrinking global community. We work hard to attract a diverse student population and celebrate our differences.
 
This February, we celebrate Black History Month with a banner of diversity. The College community read the words of singer-songwriter James Taylor’s: “Shed A Little Light” shared below.
 
Then, students, faculty and staff wrote down what diversity means to them on a shared banner displayed in the College Lobby.
 
 
Shed A Little Light 
By James Taylor
 
Let us turn our thoughts today to Martin Luther King and recognize that there are ties between us, all men and women living on the Earth.
Ties of hope and love, sister and brotherhood, that we are bound together in our desire to see the world become a place in which our children can grow free and strong.
We are bound together by the task that stands before us and the road that lies ahead.
We are bound and we are bound.
 
There is a feeling like the clenching of a fist
There is a hunger in the center of the chest
There is a passage through the darkness and the mist
And though the body sleeps the heart will never rest
 
Shed a little light, oh Lord, so that we can see, just a little light, oh Lord.
Wanna stand it on up, stand it on up, oh Lord,
wanna walk it on down, shed a little light, oh Lord.
 
Can’t get no light from the dollar bill, don’t give me no light from a TV screen.
When I open my eyes I wanna drink my fill from the well on the hill,
do you know what I mean?
 
Shed a little light, oh Lord, so that we can see, just a little light, oh Lord.
Wanna stand it on up, stand it on up, oh Lord,
wanna walk it on down, shed a little light, oh Lord.
 
There is a feeling like the clenching of a fist, there is a hunger in the center of the chest.
There is a passage through the darkness and the mist
and though the body sleeps the heart will never rest.
 
Oh, Let us turn our thoughts today to Martin Luther King
and recognize that there are ties between us.
All men and women living on the Earth, ties of hope and love, sister and brotherhood.
