MLK Day at Tabor

“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Today, the Tabor community comes together from all corners of the world for special programming to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Still in a remote phase - students will begin returning to Marion at the end of January - programming has been built to offer opportunities for students around the globe to take part in watching the award-winning documentary, “I’m Not a Racist, Am I?” and participate in discussion groups and breakout sessions this morning and throughout the day. Sessions are offered in both the morning and afternoon to accommodate the varying schedules of students who come to us from different time zones.

The documentary film was accessible for students and faculty members to watch over the weekend, and today’s programming will kick off with optional affinity spaces for students and faculty, respectively, followed by the first round of discussion groups focused on the film. There will be opportunities for students and faculty to come together throughout the day, and also to reflect and learn in separate workshops. Students and faculty will also engage in sessions to discuss the History of Martin Luther King, Jr., Organizing for Human Rights, and engage in a special session on Decolonizing History with guest speaker Jordan Clark, of the Wampanoag Tribe of Aquinnah located on Martha’s Vineyard.

Clark comes to us from Cambridge School of Weston where he serves as the Director of Community Programs for Equity and Inclusion and teaches Native American Studies. He will present on the importance of being a critical consumer of historical information, define decolonizing history, and explore contemporary examples of reclamation as it relates to Native American History. 

The final meeting block of the day will offer another chance for students and faculty to gather in their respective affinity groups to reflect. For questions about our programming for Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, please contact Loraine Snead, Director of Equity and Inclusion.
