    About Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Bates College
    Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an intense, community-wide opportunity to discuss, teach, and reflect on King’s legacy. The day is a time to examine contemporary human issues through the lens of King’s work and ideas, broadly defined. It is a day of thought, reflection, and aspiration for the entire community.
