For more than a decade, Oberlin’s Office of Community and Government Relations has coordinated a day of service and commemoration to honor the legacy of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. This town-gown gathering commences at the city’s MLK park, where civic and spiritual leaders ask those present to rededicate themselves to King’s teachings of civil disobedience and social and economic justice.
The Day of Service initiative focused on Oberlin High School, where the college’s Ninde Scholars joined others to assemble items for gift bags for high school teachers, and spruced up classrooms and equipment.
