Annually, Edgewood College celebrates the life, legacy, and achievements of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during DREAM Week, and closes on the third Monday of January in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. This year, the theme for DREAM Week is grounded in Martin Luther King, Jr.’s quote, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.
