MCISA to Honor MLK, Black History Month

January 16, 2019

Webster's Multicultural Center and International Student Affairs have planned a number of events to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and Black History Month. Through select films, campus engagement/promotions, and social media campaigns we put a critical lens on the events and people that would impact Dr. King before the pivotal years of 1965 and 1968, his evolving stance within that timeframe, the eventual outcomes from that turbulent period and the lingering impact left on the civil rights movement and American society.
