BB&N Commemorates the Legacy of Dr. King with Annual MLK Luncheon

The BB&N community recently came together to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. with the school’s annual MLK Luncheon. Now in its 36th year, the event allows for reflection on the impact of Dr. King’s legacy through speakers, musical performances, and thoughtful discussion.

This year’s gathering featured keynote speaker Rahsaan Hall, Executive Director of ACLU Civil Right Program. In addition to hearing Hall’s thoughtful remarks, attendees also were honored to welcome Reverend Hank Elkins, grandfather to a recent graduate and senior at BB&N. Elkins had the great fortune to serve as assistant pastor for Dr. King in 1962 in Atlanta and lived with the King family.

The uplifting event also featured student speakers Aanika Patel ’21, Jude-Michel Poisson ’24, and Alexandra Kluzak ’24, along with a violin performance by Gerson and Jayden Personnat ’21.
