Thank you to all who joined us on January 18 to honor the legacy of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. This virtual gathering showcases 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 asked all participants who chose 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?
