17th Annual MLK Silent Peace March at MMS Jan. 13

From the South Orange – Maplewood School District:

The 17th Annual Michele Turner Martin Luther King Jr. Silent Peace March

Friday, January 13th, 2017


All students and staff from Maplewood Middle School (approx. 800 people)

What: A silent Peace March in honor of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Where:   The March will begin on the sidewalks surrounding MMS, go through Maplewood Village, and return back to the front of the school.

When: Friday, January 13th, 2017, 9:17-10:07

Why:   The March is in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and achievements.  This unique silent march should help people reflect upon a man who was committed to fighting nonviolently for equality and peace.  His vision of America is indeed responsible for the diversity we so richly enjoy in the Maplewood community and school.  We are not only honoring the man, but his message as well.
