Martin Luther King Jr. Day Virtual Gathering

Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation
Monday January 18, 11am-12pm


Join us for NMU's annual Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration. This virtual gathering will showcase the legacy of Dr. King and how his life-long work towards racial equity and social justice has impacted the civil rights movement of past & present. We ask all participants who choose to join us in this gathering to reflect on the following question:

How can we honor the work of Civil Rights Activists of the past/present and commit to the theme of truth, racial healing and transformation within our campus community?
