Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration

January 17 @ 10:45 am - 3:30 pm

Members of the community are invited to celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. with Bridgewater College during its annual Martin Luther King Day celebration, “Celebrating the Dream, Continuing the Journey.”

The celebration will begin at 11 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 17, at Oakdale Park in Bridgewater. The event kicks off with guest speakers giving remarks at Oakdale followed by a march of event attendees from Oakdale Park to Bridgewater College’s campus. A shuttle will be available for those who would like to participate in the march but are unable to walk the entire route because of limited mobility.

At the conclusion of the march, guests are invited to enjoy a reception in the Kline Campus Center lobby. After the reception, Bridgewater College faculty will lead three teach-ins on Zoom.

All events are free and open to the public. In keeping with guidance from the CDC, Bridgewater College requires that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, properly wear face masks when indoors in public areas of campus.
