Berkshire Community College will hold a virtual Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday Janaury 17, 2022 via Zoom. The event is co-sponsored by the NAACP Berkshire County Branch.
This year’s salute to the Rev Martin Luther King Jr., in accordance with the wishes of the King family, is focused on voting rights.
The event will begin with a keynote speech by Olivia Nda. A graduate of Pittsfield High School and a senior at Howard University, Nda is active in social justice issues in both Washington, D.C., and in the Berkshires.
