NMC Celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Black History Month

Martin Luther King, Jr on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged
by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., most famous for his leadership during the civil rights movement and his “I have a dream” speech, once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?” In honor of King’s legacy, NMC will observe its first campuswide commemorative event, Embrace the Dream, from January 17 through February 14, 2022. NMC faculty, staff, and students are invited to participate in many learning activities and volunteer opportunities.

Join us as we learn more about those who have impacted our country in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion and as we reflect on our role to support this strategic direction. We hope these activities will provide opportunities to learn and share new perspectives with other students, faculty, and staff from all fields and the surrounding campus community.

A Google Calendar of activities will be sent out soon to allow you to add these activities to your own calendar. Please check out these opportunities for ways to connect, discuss, reflect, and support our community to make a difference in the lives of our underrepresented populations.

We look forward to this important event and to sharing the stories of what we learn together along the way. How will you “Embrace the Dream”?
