|1:00 pm-3:00 pm||MLK Day Teach-In Thomas Commons|
MLK Day Teach-In: Held from 1:15-3 p.m. in the Thomas Commons, this event focuses on forging a stronger Cornell community by honoring King’s legacy and discussing ways to break cycles of bigotry. It will consist of videos, discussion, brief writing activities, and breakout sessions on topics such as bystander intervention training, unconscious bias, mass incarceration, and how to unpack the “invisible backpack” of unearned privilege.
|5:00 pm-5:45 pm||Martin Luther King Jr. Candlelight Vigil|
An MLK Candlelight Vigil will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 16, beginning at the Thomas Commons Info Desk. The brief walking vigil includes the MLK Memorial tree and related campus history, then culminates in Allee Chapel where Spiritual Life student leaders and chaplain invite reflection on how the vision of the Rev. Dr. King and other civil rights leaders give insight into contemporary realities, social change, and hope for the future. Includes prayers & candle lighting for people and places in need of solidarity and healing.
