MLK Jr. Birthday Commemoration

January 20 @ 12:00 pm

The theme for the 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Commemoration is “The Purpose of Education”. Dr. King  stated, “…education has a two-fold function to perform in the life of man and in society: the one is utility and the other is culture. Education must enable a man to become more efficient, to achieve with increasing facility the legitimate goals of his life.”  In commemorating the birthday of Dr. King, the Santa Fe NAACP believes youth who are engaged in service are carrying out this two-fold function articulated by Dr. King and therefore, the Santa Fe Branch seeks to acknowledge students for their contributions to uplift our community with their service while successfully pursuing their education.
