Winter Symposium Celebration

Anne (teacher) (Harbor City International School) Originally published May 2005

Despite frigid temperatures on Monday, January 17 [2005], Harbor City International School students participated in Duluth’s Martin Luther King Day celebration by attending the 7:00 a.m. community breakfast at the Copper Top church, marching from Washington Center to the DECC, and participating in the rally at the DECC Auditorium.

Participation in the Martin Luther King Day events was part of a Winter Symposium class in which students studied the life of Martin Luther King, the Civil Rights movement, civil disobedience, and racism of the past and present.

Students in the class were privileged to have Claudi Washington, local president of the NAACP, and Will Cameron, desegregation officer for Duluth Public Schools, speak to their class.

The class will be offered again next January with even more opportunities to participate in Duluth’s Martin Luther King Day celebration.
