Southwestern College will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 16, with a couple of events. Professor Reggie Jarrell will present “Dreams, Hope, and Service” at noon in the Pounds Lounge, located on the lower level of the Roy L. Smith Student Center. Jarrell will share excerpts from his own memoir “31 Days (Nights): Memoir of Living Black in America” along with observations from his life. Also on Monday, from 2-3:30 p.m., and 7-8:30 p.m., Dawn Pleas will lead an interactive experience that will challenge participants to consider the small and big ways that they can make the world a better place. The gathering and collective work will honor the life and accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. Campus and community members are invited to attend either the afternoon or evening session which will both be held in Richardson Performing Arts Center.
