Martin Luther King Jr. Week

Engaging our community in a conversation about Dr. King's legacy and philosophies.

MLK

Bucknell's​ ​Martin​ ​Luther​ ​King​ ​Jr.​ ​Week​ ​brings​ ​various​ ​scholars​ ​to​ ​campus​​ ​to​ engage​ ​our​ ​community​ ​in​ ​a​ ​conversation​ ​about​ ​Dr.​ ​King's​ ​legacy​ ​and philosophies​ ​with​ ​regard​ ​to​ ​current​ ​struggles.

Events during this week include several performances, lectures and discussions designed to raise awareness and empower participants to enact individual and collective change.

The​ ​function​ ​of​ ​education​ ​is​ ​to teach​ ​one​ ​to​ ​think​ ​intensively​ ​and​ ​to think​ ​critically.​ ​​ ​Intelligence​ ​plus character​ ​— that​ ​is​ ​the​ ​goal​ ​of​ ​true education.
