2018 MLK Special Assembly
Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
Walnut Hill commemorated the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with an inspiring assembly address by Reverend Mariama White-Hammond, Minister for Ecological Justice at Bethel AME Church in Boston and a fellow with the Green Justice Coalition. She is also the former Executive Director of Project HIP-HOP, an organization that helps young artists use their craft for social change. Her message was powerful and simple: in order to effect change, we must address the ideological foundation that roots our individual worldview. Rev. White-Hammond reminded students to use their artistic practice to take risks and question themselves and those around them as a means to discovering how they can contribute to the greater good of society.
