Each January, King Week celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Faculty, students and staff at the George Washington University (GW) contribute interpretive programing that is exciting, thought provoking, historic and inspiring. At GW, we celebrate King from early childhood through the spirit of the civil rights movement.
Programs include faculty readings, live music and narrative, recitation of King's work, service events and more. King Week tells the story of drama, pain and perseverance that was his life. Our goal is to present an inspiring tribute to the life and vision of America's most legendary civil rights leader and humble Baptist Minister. Students of all backgrounds are invited to participate in King Week.
