The students didn’t hold back, they chimed in on what the day meant to them.

“I think it’s a day to stop and remember the civil rights movement, and one of the greatest leaders in our country’s history and a moment to remember that we need to continue to push for equity for all groups in our country, especially people of color,” Millersville University student Will Sloyer said. “I think we’ve come a long way but I think also it’s also a day to remember we have a long way to go.”

Millersville University will host a gospel concert and spoken word event on Jan. 27 to celebrate King’s life.
