While Bunker Hill Community College observes Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 16, 2023, we will be exploring the life and legacy of the Civil Rights leader throughout the month with a series of online and in person events.
MLK, Jr. fought against division and had communities of kindness and understanding as a goal. He demonstrated peace in the face of violence, resilience, and courage in his fight against injustice. Our goal through this programming series is to encourage Bunker Hill Community College students, faculty, staff, and community partners to build upon the legacy of social justice, leadership, scholarship, and non-violent activism of Martin Luther King Jr. By embracing multimedia, inviting diverse voices, and sharing our visions for an inclusive, beloved community, this programming series encourages participants to pick up the torch to make MLK Jr.'s dream our reality. This project is a collaboration between the Office of the Associate Provost-Charlestown and the Office of College Events and Cultural Planning.
