Manhattan Country School eighth-graders will honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by taking to the streets of Manhattan to speak out about what they consider to be the most pressing civil rights issues of their time. The theme of this year’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative March is “A New Revolution: Youth and Social Change,” inspired by the quote “Every generation needs a new revolution.” Along the route, students will stop at locations of significance to the fight for civil rights to deliver speeches about contemporary social justice issues. The general public is invited to join MCS students, families, alumni, staff, friends and supporters for this educational and uplifting annual event.
