MLK, Jr. Day – Resources & Day of Service

13 Jan

This coming Monday marks the observance of the birth of Dr. King (though his actual birth date is the day before) and, yes, also means a day off for students.

For any of you that are interested in MLK’s writings & speeches, check out these links.

One of Dr. King’s many strengths was his ability to stir and connect with an audience. While he may be one-of-a-kind, there’s certainly nothing stopping you from honing your own skills at writing and giving speeches.

MLK Day is also a National Day of Service – here are some chances to participate in the Portland area:

Last, but not least, “for the eighth straight year, the Multicultural Center at Portland State University is proud and pleased to hold a series of flagship events honoring the life and legacy of the great Dr. Martin Luther King.”
