Living the Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.: Exploring the Past and Changing the Future
Tobie Weiner

Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Planning Committee presents three evenings of dinner, video and discussion. Join us for dinner and a presentation and discussion of three of the "Eyes on the Prize" video series which chronicles the US Civil Rights Movement. We'll examine the accomplishments and struggles of some of the individuals who worked for positive change in their communities. You'll have a chance to connect with members of the MIT community and find out what you can do today to make the world a better place. This activity is co-sponsored by the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Planning Committee
