We celebrated the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. during the holiday weekend with a commitment to strike out injustice. Rattlers from all over the nation participated in the FAMU Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service. President Larry Robinson also delivered a powerful address at the Inter-Civic Council – Southern Christian Leadership Council’s MLK celebration.
“We had a myriad of meaningful Day of Service projects that our loyal Florida A&M University alumni were engaged in across the country commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I believe these activities spoke volumes about their commitment to focus on a ‘day on and not a day off,’ and underscore the ideals of volunteerism, social and civic activism and sincere service that were woven in the fabric of the incredible legacy of this civil rights icon and drum major for justice,” said Senior Executive Director of University Engagement/Alumni Affairs Carmen Cummings.
