Holy Cross community members gather to discuss Tavis Smiley’s “Death of a King,” which focuses on the final year of Dr. King’s life. In observation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion hosted a campuswide book read to engage with Dr. King’s legacy on an intellectual level and to explore how it still resonates today.
More than 125 students, faculty and staff read and discussed the book. In addition to discussion sessions, the book also served as the theme for the ninth annual Martin Luther King Jr. Luncheon.
