USA Today highlights MLK Week at Colgate

By Matt Hames on January 22, 2014
Join us from January 20 - 24, 2014, as we celebrate the legacy of  Martin Luther King Jr.

Colgate celebrates the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr this week.

The USA Today College section featured an interview with Thomas Cruz-Soto, associate dean of multicultural affairs at Colgate.

The article is called “College students revolutionize meaning of MLK Day,” and it talks about the changing message of Martin Luther King Jr.

Cruz-Soto says “income equality, and particularly the rising costs of college tuition, could be this generation’s catalyst for change.”

A full week of events are lined up for MLK Week at Colgate. Students can access the schedule on the Colgate app (available on iTunes and Play) or on the events page on the ALANA Cultural Center website.

Your turn: what events do you plan to attend? Alumni, what are your memories of Martin Luther King Jr. events at Colgate?
