On Jan. 21, Stephens College students, faculty and staff gathered for “A Celebration in Remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: Believe. Build. Bridge. The event included inspiring spoken and performed pieces, including those by the Stephens College Concert Choir (pictured above) and performing arts students.

These students, as well as Shaashawn Dial ’98 (pictured below, middle), director of diversity, equity and inclusion, also performed at the Columbia Values Diversity Breakfast (pictured below, bottom), at the city’s annual community celebration earlier in the month. Watch their performance here (at the one-hour mark).
