Martin Luther King Jr. Day, observed on the third Monday of January, was created to celebrate the life and work of the Civil Rights Era leader, Martin Luther King. Dr. King’s work was instrumental in helping African Americans secure their rights. In addition to his work in civil rights, Dr. King also spoke up for the disadvantaged and impoverished.
Posters are being displayed throughout the campus highlighting the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr. The poster series is sponsored by the Penn State York Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee.
