Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative March

Due to the health restrictions around gathering in large crowds, the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative March was postponed from the traditional day in January. Eighth grade students will gather with their families on Wednesday, May 19 and speak about what they consider to be the most pressing civil rights issues of their time. 

Notably, May 19 is a significant date in today's struggle against Anti-Asian violence as it is the official launch of the "May 19th Black, Brown & Asian Solidarity Project." It is also the shared birthday of Malcolm X, Ho Chi Minh, Lorraine Hansberry and Yuri Kochiyama who all lived in Harlem and worked tirelessly against racially motivated violence and for human rights. 

The uplifting and educational event will be available on livestream via the MCS Facebook page and recorded speeches will be shared after the event.
