Reverend Dr. Nekima Levy-Pounds started off the day of activities with an opening session called “Why we can’t wait, the time for justice is now!”
Many of the students in the audience say they are passionate about accepting diversity and welcoming equality on their campus.
They say it is important for students to take part in activities like these to understand the perspectives of others the lives that were affected by Martin Luther King Jr and his legacy.
“Diversity is a really important initiative at Concordia so I think taking the time and being very intentional about providing a program like this is really important to recognize the history of our nation and our state and just recognizing the struggle of those who have gone before us,” Taylor Strelow, who is a student at Concordia, said.
The day at Concordia was followed up by some other sessions, speakers and a panel discussion.
