A Tribute to MLK, and All That He’s Known For

Martin Luther King, Jr. is the most known, beloved, and important figure in civil rights history. We have a whole day off of school for him, and here at SSU we have a whole day of service dedicated to him. Not to mention we have a whole room in our Campus Center named after him, of course. Even though he was instrumental in the progress of abolishing racial injustices, he was instrumental in volunteering in other causes, as well. The more you know about a great man, the more you appreciate him.

1. Education

King not only supported the civil rights for African Americans and other minorities, but he also wanted equal opportunity for education. He not only strove for equal opportunity in the streets, but also in the classroom. Someone can be as free as they want, but if they don’t have education, it’s not easy for them to move up in society. King is an important part of why everyone has access to this nowadays. If you would like to donate to education in King’s honor, you can donate to NAACP education here.

2. Economic Opportunity

Having rights and education comes with economic growth. Just like you can’t have rights without education, you can’t with education without a place to store, invest and spend your money. MLK fought for the equal economic rights as well. Seedco is a non-profit that provides economic support and opportunities for communities. Click here to support them in honor of MLK.

The MLK Day of service here is on Saturday from 9 AM – 3 PM in Vets Hall. It’s a day for,” students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members the opportunity to come together to assist nonprofit organizations in the area with critical projects.” To sign up to assist this event in honor of MLK, please fill out this form.
