KING'S LEGACY   The Michigan Law community gathered Jan. 21—Martin Luther King Day—for a talk on "The Influence of Dr. King's Legacy on South Africa's Vision to Create a Society that Respects Fundamental Human Rights." The program was presented by Michigan Law Visiting Prof. Karthy Govender, who teaches full-time at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. The focus of his talk, Prof. Govender said, "was to look at Dr. King's ideas about creating a more caring society, a society based on equality, which enables people to realize their potential and worth and be productive."
