Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Highline

  • Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Week Poster 2017

Join us to celebrate and continue the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a weeklong program of events beginning January 17, 2017.

Throughout the week there will be free lectures, seminars and workshops united by the theme “Fear, Falsehood and Freedom: Where Do We Go From Here?”

Organized by Highline College’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, the events will examine community building, faith in social activism, the role art plays in social justice and more.

Lectures will include thought leaders such as Anida Yoeu Ali, artist, writer and global agitator; Jesse Hagopian, author, history teacher and Black Student Union co-advisor at Garfield High School; and Dr. Maxine Mimms, co-founder of the Tacoma Program of The Evergreen State College.

Highline’s Martin Luther King Jr. Week is sponsored by the college’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, Center for Leadership and Service, Learning and Teaching Center, LGBTQIA Task Force, Between the Lines Book Club, Whites on White committee and the AANAPISI program.
