Queens College’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day commemoration will take place virtually this year on Sunday, January 17, at 3 pm.

The presentation of THE TIME IS NOW: FORWARD! will celebrate King’s legacy and connection to today’s student activism and engagement by evoking his 1965 appearance at the college where he emphasized the power of peaceful resistance in an address to students.

This free event is open to the public and will feature Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, Queens College students quoting passages from King’s 1965 speech, musical, dance, and spoken word performances, a special video presentation highlighting the college's history of activism, and a panel of distinguished educators discussing King’s enduring legacy.
