PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College's Studium Generale program will present a special tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at 12:35 p.m. today.

Eric C. Davis, also known as Professor E, a sociology faculty member at Bellevue College, will be the featured speaker at the presentation in the college's Little Theater at the college at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

While an undergraduate at UCLA, Eric created his signature program, “RAP 101: The Message in the Music.”
