MLK Day 2012
At The Putney School, Martin Luther King Day is not a holiday. We use the time to come together as a community to celebrate diversity and do work related to improving relations among all people. The morning is largely presentations, while the afternoon is filled with workshops. Here's a video sampling of what we did in the morning.
In the afternoon, one group of students and faculty staged guerilla sings at several locations, including one nursing home that had four Putney alumni living there. Titles of the other activities included Aren't All Asians the Same?, What Does Rich Mean in Different Cultures?, Racism Within Races, Assumptions, Gender is a Spectrum, Can’t You Take a Joke?, Don’t Touch My Weave, Destructive Force of Positive Stereotypes, and Faith.
