2017 Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative March

January 16, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

| Free

Manhattan Country School eighth graders will honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by taking to the streets of Manhattan to speak out about what they consider to be the most pressing civil rights issues of their time. The theme of this year’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative March is “We Will Not Be Silenced: A Call to Action,” inspired by the recent presidential election and King’s quote: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Along the march route, students will stop at locations of significance to the fight for civil rights to deliver speeches to raise awareness about issues such as racism, sexism, and environmental justice and advocate for inclusion and equality. The general public is invited to join MCS students, families, alumni, staff and supporters for this educational and uplifting annual event.
