Indiana University and Bloomington MLK Jr. Day Celebrations

MLKDarkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.

–Martin Luther King Jr. (Where Do We Go from Here, 1967)

 On Monday, January 21 we celebrate the birth of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. To many this holiday is just another day without classes.  Although the break from school work is indeed nice, this day can also be spent in service to others or simply remembering or learning about Mr. King and his fellow civil rights activists. Here are a few resources available in the Business/SPEA Information Commons and online that can help give greater purpose to our day off from school. Enjoy!
