MLK

Please join us, Wednesday, January 16, 2019 in the Gaiser Student Center, at Clark College

Clark College hosts a daylong remembrance of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with an exhibit and guest speaker.

Black History Mobile Museum

The Signature Series: Black Historical Figures from 1800 to current day

Open for viewing from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Guest Speaker MC Sha-Rock

The History and Impact of Hip Hop Culture from a Pioneer’s Perspective

Starts at 12:00 p.m. (noon)

Donation Opportunity

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, we are excited to partner with YWCA to host a drive to collect Black hair and skin care products for African American families. Black hair requires different products than other types of ethnic hair and these products are often more expensive, hard to find and not easily accessible—especially in shelters.

Let’s help African American families that utilize services at YWCA feel and look good by giving them the products that they need!

Donations will be collected in Gaiser Student Center on January 16 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Donations may also be dropped off at the Office of Equity and Diversity, GHL 214 the week of January 14.

 

All events are free and open to the public. Directions and maps are available at www.clark.edu/maps
