Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration

Community comes out to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

On Monday, Jan. 21, MCW celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day with the theme, See Yourself in MLK’s legacy. The event featured presenters from MCW and the Greater Milwaukee Community who shared the important work they are doing to help others in the areas of research, patient care, community engagement and education.

More than 130 guests enjoyed a mixture of videos, live presentations and audience participation, reflecting on Dr. King’s legacy of social justice, health equity and dignity for all with a renewed sense of committed action.

Featured guests and presenters included Dr. John Kirby, Dr. Vidya Kidambi, Dr. Nathan Lamberton, Dr. Kristina Kaljo, Nathalie Abenoza, Kavanya Gray, Gregory M. Wesley, Dr. David Ombengi and Brookfield East High School. Guests enjoyed a stirring spoken word piece from Cedric Hoard and a motivating music rendition by Nickel & Rose.

We would like to thank the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Planning Committee, the Office of Academic Affairs, Communications and Brand Strategy, General Services, TB Productions, LLC, and a host of others who made this event a huge success!
