MLK Travel Seminar Marches to Honor Martin Luther King, Jr.

Members of the MLK Student Travel Seminar marched through Chambersburg on Thursday, May. 3 in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.

During the 45-minute march, participants walked approximately 2.4 miles from campus to the Franklin County Courthouse and back in Downtown Chambersburg.

According to an email from Dr. David True, participants in the march were “encouraged to honor MLK and civil rights activists by creating signs with phrases that were used in the movement.”

The group also played one of King’s speeches and sang/chanted slogans from past Civil Rights Movement marches throughout the event.
