In The Footsteps of
Dr. King

Sponsored by the

Queens College Student Association, the Office of the President,
the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Student Development &
Leadership, New York City Council Member Rory Lancman, and
the Taub Family Foundation.



ABOUT: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF DR. KING offers a unique opportunity for students to travel to major sites of the civil rights movement. Students will learn under the direction of educators who worked with the great civil rights through the historic landscape of the movement. The program—scheduled during the week of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day— features highlights of Dr. King’s quest for racial equality and justice.


This program seeks to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to combat bigotry and intolerance in today’s society. As many people know, Queens College students were active in the civil rights movement, and they were not alone: All over the country, young people mobilized to end segregation and combat racial injustice. Students played a key role in the 1950s and 1960s as they joined marches, sit-ins, boycotts, voter registration drives, and other forms of nonviolent protest and organizing.


mlk_3.pngIN THE FOOTSTEPS OF DR. KING allows students to connect with that struggle in meaningful ways. They will meet civil rights leaders and explore modern-day impacts of the civil rights movement.


As a condition of joining In the Footsteps students will be expected to record their experiences through video, photography, and writing, and, upon their return to campus, to share what they have learned with a broader audience. 

Our next trip is planned to take place during MLK Week,  Sunday through Thursday, Jan 20, 2019 - Jan 24, 2019.
