MLK Day at Exeter


At Phillips Exeter Academy  the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is a secular sabbath whose significance goes deep into students’ learning. The MLK Day Committee, directed by Tom Simpson, meets on Tuesday nights throughout the year to produce an MLK day that the school treats as respectfully as it treats other opportunities to turn young people’s minds and spirits toward the possibilities of human striving.  I am glad to have been invited to give their 2014 keynote.
