How students, community members advocate for change through MLK Day march

Since the rise of the Civil Rights Movement in 1954, protest marches have long been a form of activism in fighting to end racial segregation and exclusion. It was at the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, held in 1963, where Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the exalted "I Have a Dream" speech. Communications senior and member of Alpha Phi Alpha Brandon Foster will be the coordinator for the 2024 MLK Commemorative March. For Foster, who was also coordinator last year, the march "means a lot to him" because it brings diversity, equity and inclusion within MSU.
