Atlanta Public Schools is excited to present a series of “teach-in” guest lectures for elementary school students, surrounding the 2011 MLK March Week in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., from Jan. 10-14.
“These ‘teach-in’ lecturers will deliver Dr. King’s principles of non-violence to schoolchildren by teaching them to make critical connections to real-world issues, thus equipping them with the tools necessary to champion social change issues in the 21st century,” said Samuel E. Prater, the 2011 M.L. King March Committee representative.
The week of activities will culminate with a “Youth Conference” on Saturday, Jan. 15, from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. at the International Brotherhood of Electric Workers (IBEW) building. All interested students should be encouraged to participate in the conference.
