KCC to host silent march honoring legacy of Martin Luther King
Kellogg Community College will celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., by hosting a silent march for students and community members beginning at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29.
The march will begin outside the C Classroom Building near Spring Lake on KCC’s North Avenue campus and will wind around campus toward the Miller Physical Education Building before concluding at the reflecting pools at the main entrance to the campus.
TaNisha Parker, manager of Student Life at KCC, which is hosting the event in collaboration with the college’s Service Learning Office, said the march will allow participants time to reflect on the positive contributions King made to the country.
“Dr. King’s vision, his dream, helped ignite a flame of justice and equality for all,” Parker said. “It is important to remember and celebrate Dr. King’s dream because the struggle to achieve it did not end with his passing; the struggle continues today.”
Following the march, individuals will have the opportunity to sign an “I have a dream” banner across from the Records and Registration desk with comments highlighting positive aspirations for KCC and society as a whole. The banner will then be displayed on campus.
KCC will observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday, on Monday, Jan. 21, when all campus locations and offices will be closed.
