The Stephens College campus came alive on Jan. 16 with an expression of remembrance for Martin Luther King Jr. through student performances of song, dance and spoken word. 

The event, titled “Carrying Out the Dream: First Them, Now Us – A Celebration of Remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” was organized by a group of Stephens students, faculty and staff. The MLK Day Committee (pictured below) comprised Azizah Badwan ’18; Ty Berry ’18; Lenora Brown ’18; Parris Davis ’18; Tylar Grant ’18; Jada Kyle ’18; Kristen Longellier, instructor; Ania Martin ’20; Dr. Monica McMurry, dean of the School of Design; Laura Nunnelly, director of student life and engagement; Kim Schellenberger, director of human resources; Darin Tuck, instructor; Marlena Thompson ’18 and Tiana Williams ’18.

All Stephens classes were cancelled on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in observance of the holiday, and the College also screened two documentaries, Malcolm X and Selma, Lord, Selma.
