There were six speakers that presented over Zoom today, including officials from Minnesota State, BSU Campus Diversity Officer Steven Parker, and Michele Brielmaier, NTC’s Dean of Nursing and Human Services.
Dr. Ye “Solar” Hong, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, said the event aims to provide a platform for the community to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King through spoken words.
Hong also shared, that she is very thankful for everyone that attended today’s event, either virtually or in-person. She is grateful for all of the support that they have received from the community and institutions.
Though this event has looked different for the last two years due to the pandemic, it is something that both BSU and NTC will strive to host annually moving forward.
