MLK Day Lyman Briggs Event

“In a sense we come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our Republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men-yes, black men as well as white men-would be guranteed the unalienable rights of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” (Martin Luther King, Jr., 1963 “I Have A Dream…” Speech at the “March on Washington)

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

MSU is hosting many events today and through-out the year celebrating MLK and two very important anniversaries in the fight for equality and civil rights. This year is the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act & the 60th anniversary of of Brown vs. Topeka Board of Education Supreme Court case decision.

Thus, this year long initiative is titled the 60/50 initiative. “The intent of the year-long initiative is to link academic exploration and study, public commemoration and remembrance, laced with a multitude of cultural expressions.” (MSU Office of for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives Website).

Today Lyman Briggs is hosting a Diversity Workshop at 2:00pm. It will start at 2:00pm in C-106 Holmes Hall and HPSSA will be there. Hope to see you!
