The Time Is Now: Forward!
Time Out says
Queens College’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day commemoration, "The Time Is Now: Forward!" will celebrate King’s legacy and connection to today’s student activism and engagement by evoking his 1965 appearance at the college where he emphasized the power of peaceful resistance in an address to students. Queens Borough President Donovan Richards will speak and Queens College students will quote passages from King’s 1965 speech. There will also be music, dance, and spoken word performances, a special video presentation highlighting the college's history of activism, and a panel of distinguished educators discussing King’s enduring legacy.
