From the video: "The Soul Club of the Fashion Institute of Technology was organized in 1968 after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and tonight we are dedicating our show to him and to the acknowledgement of what he has done for the people of this country. Dr. King had many dreams for this world. Unfortunately, the climate of our country has changed and the dreams have been deferred -- but this year, with the national celebration of his birth, we are rededicating ourselves to peace and love for all mankind."
From the video: "We wish to acknowledge your support for these sixteen years. A special appreciation to Miss Clara Branch, our Soul Club advisor. [FIT] President Marvin Feldman will make a presentation."
