To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Fr. Ted’s passing — we’ve produced this story detailing his attendance at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1964 Civil Rights Rally at Chicago’s Soldier Field — which led to the iconic photo of the two locking arms…
This past month, the University memorialized this moment in an 8′ x 8′ mosaic that more than 800 Notre Dame students, faculty and staff helped create during “Walk The Walk Week.”
In the story you’ll see film footage of Fr. Ted and Dr. King at this event (courtesy of Notre Dame Archives) that has never been seen before.
You’ll find this story and others at our 1842 Stories of Notre Dame website: http://1842stories.nd.edu
We thought you might want to share this with your donors and donor prospects tomorrow — Friday, February 26th — on the one year anniversary of Fr. Ted’s death.
