Please join together for Brookline’s celebration of the life and values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at 3 pm Monday, January 15, 2018, at the Coolidge Corner Theatre.
The theme for this year’s event is “The Radical King– The Fierce Urgency of Now.” Dr. Chad Williams, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of African and Afro-American Studies at Brandeis University, is our keynote speaker. Dr. King, as civil rights activist and moral leader, was much more radical in his time than he is now remembered. Dr. Williams will ask us to think about how Dr. King’s words and actions can be applied to today’s troubling times. The program will also feature the poet/performer Regie Gibson, Brookline Poet Laureate Zvi Sesling and, from Brookline High School, slam poet Carolyn Parker-Fairbain and the acapella group Testostatones. This event is free. Reserved tickets are available on EventBrite at BrooklineMLK.eventbrite.com until Sunday, January 14. Sign language interpretation will be provided.

NEW FAMILY WELCOME POINT PERSON:
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
