UMass Global commemorates Martin Luther King Jr. Day

January 14, 2022

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an annual reminder that courageous individuals have the power to improve society. King and others who confronted violence and bigotry in pursuit of civil rights accomplished much to make the United States a more just society. Ensuring the nation’s promises of liberty and justice for all are kept, however, is an ongoing endeavor.

In this spirit, the university will close its offices and classrooms on Monday, Jan. 17 to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day and afford our community time to reflect and act. In doing so, we can join others in creating a more equitable and brighter future for all.
 
Below you will find a list of resources compiled by the Office of Equity and Inclusion for a safe commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day

  • The King Center has scheduled its webcast of the annual Beloved Community Commemorative Service for 7 a.m. PST Monday.
     
  • The California African American Museum plans a virtual celebration to include a reading of King’s “A Christmas Sermon on Peace” and the Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles’ performances of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and other pieces. The virtual event is set to begin at 11 a.m. PST Monday.
     
  • The city government of Tacoma, Washington plans to webcast its Hope & Healing event at 8 p.m. PST Monday. The city plans to host performers and speakers involved in community service.
