Glenfield Middle School celebrated King with its annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. assembly. This year’s theme was “Activism for Change.” Over the past few weeks, Glenfield staff and students have been conducting classroom and school-wide discussions related to the legacy of Dr. King and his connection to peace. This year’s assembly was a culmination of the students’ reflections and celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life. The assembly is coordinated by a committee of teachers led by Margaret Whitsett. This year’s event included both adults and students who were treated to speeches, musical and dance performances as well as our live painting. Rabbi Israel Dresner was our Keynote Speaker. Glenfield is in pursuit of developing a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Art Gallery. As part of the assembly program student artists create a live painting inspired by the theme. This year, artwork was a portrait of the Civil Rights Activist, Fannie Lou Hamer, for her determination to be a change agent in a time of inequality. The finished painting will be on display in the Glenfield library.
