2008 MLK Day Event at U-M

Looking for something to do to celebrate the life and legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.? Wondering how to help your school-age students grasp the reasoning behind having the day off from school and or celebrating this historic figure?

Come join us on MLK Day, Monday, January 21, 2008 where CREATIVITY, DIALOGUE, & ENTERTAINMENT is on the program for students in grades K-12.

The University of Michigan hosts the largest MLK Symposium in the world, and has the premier Children & Youth Program. This premier program is specifically designed to engage students at each of the elementary and secondary grade-levels. The two programs run simultaneously in the same building. Guided by teacher-leaders from the School of Education and volunteers from the School of Social Work, The Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning and many more campus schools and organizations, K-12 students enjoy both small and large group activities which focus on the work of Dr. King and how it relates to their lives today.
