Learning from the Legacy of Dr. King The Time is Always Right MLKJr

The Woods Charter High School Diversity Alliance organized a day-long event to commemorate the life work of Martin Luther King Jr.  A panel of guest speakers adressed questions from the student body on the topic of race and how it intertwines with their work as artists, scholars, and activists. The panelists met with small groups of students to discuss race in America today. Rich discussions on race and sports, criminal justice, environmental racism, the media, and more explored the issues and provided space to tackle tough questions.

The Woods Spanish Club provided a delicious lunch and raised over $500 to contribute to hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico. 

High school students took part in a bystander intervention training and workshop, then met with middle schoolers to discuss their takeaways and findings.  

In grades K-4, guest parents shared picture books and discussion about key figures in the struggle for civil rights for African-Americans. Middle school students participated in awareness activities, workshops, and courageous conversations about privilege and discrimination featuring aspects of Dr. King's legacy of racial justice, non-violence, and peace.

Many, many thanks to the guests, volunteers, panelists, and the Woods community. Sarah Koppelkam and Alex Herzing provided the vision and leadership that made the day happen.

"From two of our most fiercely moral voices, a passionate call to arms against our era’s most pervasive human rights violation: the oppression of women and girls in the developing world.

With Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn as our guides, we undertake an odyssey through Africa and Asia to meet the extraordinary women struggling there, among them a Cambodian teenager sold into sex slavery and an Ethiopian woman who suffered devastating injuries in childbirth. Drawing on the breadth of their combined reporting experience, Kristof and WuDunn depict our world with anger, sadness, clarity, and, ultimately, hope.
