On Friday, Jan. 14, La Salle students gathered in the gym for an assembly held by La Salle’s Black Student Union to commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  

Through song, a spoken-word poem, reflection, and prayer, students were reminded of Dr. King’s legacy and the applications of his legacy to everyday life.

“It’s a good way to remind people that things are still going on in the world,” senior and member of the Black Student Union Simon Abraha said.

In the following video, three members of the Black Student Union communicated their feelings on the assembly, sharing takeaways from the event.
