Martin Luther King Jr. Week

Service, Community, Reflection

Martin Luther King, JrIn January 2021, we will again begin the spring semester with a  celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. Around the campus, we will prominently display the words of great African American artists, thinkers, writers, activists, performers, and others from the nineteenth century to the present; all quotes were suggested by members of the community. A number of events will take place virtually, and on campus. Activities will include a series of lightning talks; film screenings; discussion; and plans for the future; We hope you will join us in our efforts to honor Dr. King, the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement, and the future of inclusion and equity at Ursinus.
