Welcome to SLCC Talks, a feature where The Globe asks fellow students questions about SLCC issues.
In this edition of SLCC Talks we asked students about the great Martin Luther King Jr.
What does Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy mean to you?
Ana Felix, General Studies: “He wanted to fight for rights for everybody. He wanted to make the world a better place and make it easier for everyone.”
Kristian Cook, General Studies: “It’s definitely the end of an era of oppression for a group of people. He was a mover and shaker of the times. The world needs more people like him. [He changed] the ideals of an entire nation. [He] definitely needs to be talked about more.”
Leah Harris, Photography: “What he did was really important. It helped shape what the country is today.”
Craig Neely, Photography: “Equality. He led by example. He’s a true leader and a great example. It’s tough to describe him in a few words. He’s a hero.”
