Now is the Time

On Monday, January 20, SI students, including members of AAAS, ALAS, and ASC, joined citizens of the Bay Area in a march from the San Francisco CalTrain station to Yerba Buena Gardens, in honor of “Now is the Time” 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. Day. After religious leaders of several different faiths invited participants to a spiritual reflection, many SI students remained for a variety of speakers such as Deven Richardson ’84 and representatives from Queseda Gardens and Hunters Point Family Foundation.

As we enter Black History Month in February, AAAS looks to boost its leader- ship in the larger SI community. “Black History Month gives us a chance to appreciate the eclectic make-up of our society, and specifically for us at SI,” explained AAAS Vice President Camille Edwards ’14. “We all have so many gifts and talents, and we should [take this opportunity to] highlight those that are not predominately in the mainstream.”

This month we celebrate the rich history of African Americans.
