Annual MLK Celebration Event

MLK.WALK.18For nearly 30 years The Roeper School has celebrated Dr. King with our MLK Candlelight Walk celebration which will occur on Monday, January 15th. The MLK Candlelight Walk is one of our most important events. Definitely one not to miss! Click on the poster to view the PDF.

4:00pm:  FILM: We invite families (recommended for stage III and older) to come together to view a short film and follow-up conversation led by our upper school students. We will view a short a segment of the Jane Elliott “Blue-Eyed, Brown Eyed” experiment with her third grade students. This is a powerful film about a teacher who wanted her students to experience discrimination and injustice after the death of Dr. King. She did this brilliantly in her classroom with her third grade students by creating an atmosphere of inequity based on eye-color.
