Lake Michigan College is planning a week filled with activities to mark Martin Luther King Day starting Monday. LMC Diversity Consultant Danny Sledge tells WSJM News it is important for an institution of learning like LMC to celebrate the lessons taught by Dr. Martin Luther King.
“Dr. King was a significant figure in the United States in terms of his advocacy for social justice and so it’s important that we continue to remember him and keep his legacy alive,” Sledge said.
The program of events begins Monday with the college’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast Celebration and Awards Ceremony. Tuesday brings a screening of Detroit, a film from last year. Wednesday will feature a privilege walk at the college, and then Thursday brings the annual race relations forum. You can find the full schedule for next week at www.lakemichigancollege.edu/mlk.
