Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day
"This holiday can remind us that our democracy is incomplete -- that our form of associated living stands as an ideal toward which we strive and, perhaps, will never achieve," said Glaude (above right), an associate professor of religion who joined the Princeton faculty last year. "What better way to celebrate King's prophetic witness than to remember that hubris darkens the soul and blinds us to a world in need?"
Glaude's rousing speech followed the presentation of awards for area students in the University's annual King Day essay and poster contests. Pictured above, from left, are first-prize winners Sophia Ginez, grade 5, Indian Fields Elementary School, Dayton; Ellen Kraft, grade 9, Villa Victoria Academy, Trenton; Amisha Ahuja, grade 7, Lawrence Middle School, Lawrence; and Leslie Hart, grade 11, Stuart Country Day School, Princeton.
