Martin Luther King (MLK) Week

On MLK Day, Northfield Mount Hermon does not take the day off. 

Instead, it’s a day on, and part of a full week of learning and activities dedicated to the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

MLK Week is planned by students, led by the Student Diversity Committee and in cooperation with the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Special activities might include guest speakers, diversity summits, town hall meetings, story nights, documentary screenings, art exhibits, music and dance performances, and all-school reads. In 2022, students read King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail and attended a talk with scholar Dr. Eddie S. Glaude Jr., chair of Princeton University's Department of African American Studies.
