MSSC remembers March on Washington, Martin Luther King Jr.

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Multicultural Student Services Center organized a walk Saturday through campus to the Lincoln Memorial and to the memorial for the Civil Rights Movement leader.

Michael Tapscott, the director of the MSSC, remembers watching King give his “I Have a Dream” speech on television in 1963, when Tapscott was growing up in Northeast D.C.

“I remember feeling and thinking as a child that my life would change, and that change in my life would be associated with that particular man and that particular movement,” he said.
