LET'S RECAP:
MLK Oratory Listening Party
On January 23rd, we hosted an listening party in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Featuring many of his most famous speeches and addresses, students were able to enjoy a quiet setting for active listening and reflection with their peers. Using material from the Racial Healing Handbook (available at the lending library ) students had a candid discussion on the possibility of a racially just world.

Here's one of our favorites: I've Been to the Mountain Top MLK Speech
Lore-El Welcome Back Event
On January 21st, the Lore-El Center welcomed back students with self-care activities, snacks, LinkedIn resources, and resource-sharing.
CHECK IT OUT!
Don't get too distracted by the charming and cute Kid President! He's got some great info on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
―  Nelson Mandela,  Long Walk to Freedom
