Monday, Jan. 15 through Wednesday, Jan. 17, the Office of Multicultural Student Services (OMSS) held a series of events, exhibits and discussions to celebrate King.

"There is one thing that 45 (Trump) did do, he brought us together, he filled this room, he made people wake up".

From picking up trash to gardening to even graffiti removal, the students spent their day off from school as a day of service to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Some gave sweat, some gave hope, and some gave their lives in the struggle for a better world.

Marchers chose the courthouse in honor of the many courthouse's Dr. King and other activists protested at during The Civil Rights Movement.

Organizers say it highlights how far we've come since the death of Dr. King and how far we still have to go.

Hudson also states it's important to remember that Dr. King's non-violence message was not one of non-action.

A US judge ruled last Tuesday that DACA should remain in effect until legal challenges brought in multiple courts are resolved. When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Mr Durbin said Mr Trump replied: "We don't need more Haitians'".

The exhibit, which is a collaboration between the King family, Morehouse College and The Center for Civil and Human Rights, is on display until April 23.

"Sometimes, we may be in an era where you need this light, and so, for me, this festival is a light that shines bright", said Menchion.

"I'm kind of glad that we had the show out we had today because it shows that we really do care", she said.

"I have no issue with them using the holiday for business if they feel the need", board member Jessica Levsen said.

It was senior Ellen Ogilvie's first time participating in Community Outreach Day, but she enjoyed the opportunity to meet new people and work on projects "that help people we don't think about too often".

The event was led by the Rev Al Sharpton, who spoke to a crowd of about 200 people Monday in Harlem. "I think his legacy means that you do matter, everyone matters, but you can make a difference", Wade said.
