GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, WMU-Cooley Law School and the school’s Black Law Student Association hosted a viewing of the documentary Martin Luther King Jr. – The Man and The Dream.
Following the documentary, a discussion was held about the impact King has had on individuals, the community and society. Leaders of the group discussion also contemplated what society would be like today if King was not assassinated 47 years ago.
“It’s important to reflect back on the work Dr. King accomplished almost 50 years ago and to consider what else we can do in terms of establishing equality,” said Te Smith, president, WMU-Cooley Black Law Students Association. “We all enjoyed celebrating his legacy together and the impact he has had on society.”
