Roanoke College will also observe the anniversary of Martin Luther King Junior's "I Have A Dream" speech, Wednesday.
The college is having a bell-ringing ceremony at 3:00 p.m. on the Back Quad.
It's a part of the "Let Freedom Ring" bell-ringing happening across the nation today.
The celebration marks the 50-th anniversary of King's now-famous speech on the National Mall in 1963, during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
