Each January, the Bryn Mawr community celebrates the legacy of Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. with special programs. In 2018, Little School children sang about friendship, kindness and, of course, the Happy Birthday song in honor of Dr. King’s birthday. Kindergarten through 4th grade students attended an assembly filled with music and poetry focusing on Dr. King’s legacy of social justice, equality and fairness, followed by classroom discussions. Students in grades 5-12 heard from a remarkable panel of four African American alumnae who shared their stories and experiences of being students of color at Bryn Mawr throughout different decades.
