On January 17 the country recognizes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a day off of work and school, but also as a “day on” when people step up to march in his memory, or work on a service project, or take time to reflect on what Dr. King’s legacy means to them.
On January 17, at Royal Oak Middle School, students, staff, and community members are invited to take part in a Day On to honor Dr. King’s legacy. Both Berkley Schools and Royal Oak students are collaborating on this event that will include speakers, the Detroit Youth Choir, testimonials on what Dr. King and his "I have a dream" speech mean to you, and a Freedom March around the school.
The event begins at 10:30 AM and all are welcome to participate. Watch for more information on this important event on the City of Royal Oak, Royal Oak Schools and Berkley School District websites and social media.
