Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Events

Following the path of least resistance is often an easier, simpler choice. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. showed us what it means to choose the more difficult path and to stand up for justice – even when it seems impossible.

Join Shenandoah University as we explore examples of resistance and activism throughout history and how resilience has made change possible.

Campus and community members are invited to participate through our annual Service of Remembrance, Creative Arts Showcase, virtual diversity workshops, Winchester walking tour and more!
