Martin Luther King, Jr., was a crusader and a voice for equality and social justice during a time when being that voice was perilous. He had plenty of reasons to stand down. His eventual triumph in changing the tide of civil rights was met at every juncture with rancor, violence, threats and even imprisonment.
Dr. King knew that the promise of a better life for those he represented was worth the effort. And through his fight for equality he lifted our whole nation.
At TESU, we are especially proud of our students who are committed to changing their lives and their communities for a better society.
On Monday, January 21, as we remember Dr. King and the enormity of his impact, we celebrate his legacy by engendering a strong, engaged and inclusive environment in our work, education and civic life.
