Watkinson School in Hartford and its Office for Equity & Justice is pleased to announce a special Martin Luther King Jr. assembly with Derrick Gay on Jan. 16, 2015 in the Foisie Amphitheater on the Watkinson campus.  

The day will promptly begin at 8 a.m. where students will be in the Ampitheatre participating in a workshop led by Derrick Gay, a wonderfully engaging diversity consultant. Mr. Gay will be using Dr. King’s “Blueprint Speech” as a guiding text to help connect King’s vision for social justice with contemporary issues. If Dr. King were alive today, what would he march for? You’ll be invited to examine your sense of identity and contemplate the ways in which one person can be an agent for positive and substantial change.

The public is welcome to attend.  Watkinson School is Hartford’s oldest independent day school serving students in grades 6-12/PG.  Their next open house is Jan. 23, 9-11 a.m. and Sunday, Jan. 25, from 1-3 p.m. Visit www.watkinson.org.
