Imagine the Power of Honoring Dr. King

Through the collaboration of Newark Academy’s Community Service Program, the Director of Equity and Inclusion, NA alumni, parents, student leaders and administrators, Newark Academy hosted its inaugural MLK Day of Service event. This event was in keeping with the year’s community service focus on poverty and income inequality. More than 100 attendees learned about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s work in this area and engaged in indirect service projects. Tanya Fields - a food justice activist, educator, urban farmer, food blogger and founder and executive director of the BLK ProjeK, a Bronx-based food justice and health organization serving underserved women of color by creating women-led economic development opportunities and is committed to urban farming and elimination of food deserts. Serving as keynote, the event offered attendees the opportunity to engage in a morning of learning, service and leadership development honoring Dr. King, with a special emphasis on the last year of his life working on the Poor People’s Campaign.
