Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2016

Monday, January 18
MLK

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 18, 2016, New Trier will host the MLK Seminar Day on Race.  The goals for this day are to help New Trier students develop a deeper understanding of their own racial identities and the identities of others, and to better understand how we can all work to counter the impact of systemic racism in our lives.  The MLK Seminar Day on Race will be a regular day of student attendance and will feature a keynote speech by Isabel Wilkerson , the author of The Warmth of Other Suns , and over 80 workshop sessions presented by New Trier staff, student groups, and experts from the Chicago area.  In addition to Isabel Wilkerson, we will also have a special presentation by Ilyasah Shabazz , daughter of Malcom X and author of Growing Up X .  A complete list of workshop offerings can be found in the left column.
