Antioch University Midwest to Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on January 21

Antioch Midwest Celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Local and State Leaders to Discuss Dr. King’s Legacy on Society and Education

The community is invited to join Antioch University Midwest (AUM) students and local and state officials for “Reflections of Peace,” a celebration of the life of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The event is from 6 to 9 pm on Wednesday, January 21 at AUM’s auditorium in its facility at 900 Dayton Street, Yellow Springs. AUM is excited to welcome featured guest A.J. Wagner, a member of the Ohio Board of Education as the evening’s special guest.

“It is important to reflect on and honor the legacy of Dr. King as well as the many who marched with him for civil rights in this country,” said Karen Hunt, recruitment & enrollment advisor for AUM and programming co-chair for MLK Dayton. “Dr. King’s contributions to how we think about education, social justice and equality are as relevant today as they were in 1964, and we hold those dear at Antioch University.”

The event includes a retrospective video of Dr. King accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, which will launch a discussion about the impact Dr. King had on society as a whole and what it means to us today.

The event is free and open to all. Registration is not required.
