MSJC to Host Virtual MLK Event on Jan. 27
As part of a yearlong Black 365 initiative by Mt. San Jacinto College's Black student and leadership groups, MSJC will host a virtual public event honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Thursday, Jan. 27.
The hourlong event -- from noon to 1 p.m. -- will focus on Dr. King's final speech, "I've Been to the Mountaintop," which he delivered April 3, 1968, a day before his tragic assassination in Memphis, Tennessee. The event will also feature MSJC students' reflections on the speech and the legendary civil rights leader.
The public is encouraged to attend and can register for the Zoom event. MSJC's Umoja, C-BLACC, Sankofa, Ujima and A2MEND student and leadership groups are leading the yearlong Black 365 initiative of events at MSJC.
