Plans for MLK Week

Plans are already underway for this year’s Martin Luther King, Jr. week celebration

The annual Martin Luther King, Jr. week celebration will take place from Jan. 17-21 this year.

Events and competitions such as the MLK Poster Board Competition, the MLK Student Tribute and the MLK Legacy Award are already available for students to partake in. The Legacy Award is currently accepting nominations. This is the fifth year of the award.

The Jim Crow museum, which is the largest publicly accessible collection of racist artifacts in the country, is asking for contributions.

The theme for this year’s poster board competition is “The Jim Crow Era: Then and Now.” Other annual events will be held such as the week long display of the Tunnel of Oppression, the Freedom March and discussion forums and featured speakers.
