MLK Day Convo

Academy of Holy Angels (AHA) comes together as a student body, faculty, and staff in a weekly Convocation assembly. Convocations provide a time and space for AHA to build community, learn from each other, pray together, celebrate good news, and hear from new and relevant speakers. 

At the all-school Convocation on Thursday, January 18, students honored Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by taking time together to learn about his life and legacy. 

Senior Jiggie G. Presents on MLK Day

Jiggi G. (pictured), a senior and a member of the school's Diversity Club, gave a presentation that highlighted important moments of Dr. King's life. She described a notable event when Dr. King spent a summer in the north, where segregation did not take place. Jiggi said, "That summer experience in the North only deepened King’s growing hatred of racial segregation, which led him to want to make a lasting change."

Jiggi also shared important Civil Rights events that took place during King's life and spoke about other influential people of color who positively impacted the Civil Rights movement, including Thurgood Marshall, Charles Hamilton Houston, and W.E.B. De Bois. She closed her presentation asking for everyone to reflect on Dr. King's quote, "Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly."
