The George School community will honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 15, 2018.
Each year, the MLK Day Committee plans either a day of off-campus community service or special programming on campus. This year, most students and advisors will remain on campus for a special assembly in Walton auditorium.
The assembly will feature Dr. Amanda Kemp, author of Say the Wrong Thing: Stories and Strategies for Racial Justice and Authentic Community. Amanda earned her doctorate in Performance Studies at Northwestern University and completed studies in African and Afro-American Studies at Stanford University. A Visiting Scholar at Franklin & Marshall College, Amanda is the founder of Theatre for Transformation and a nationally touring spoken word and performing artist.
Before and after the assembly students will meet with their collection groups to lead discussions based on Dr. King’s I Have a Dream speech and how it relates to today’s culture.
