The MLK Week planning committee has put together a week of great events surrounding the 2012 MLK Week theme: A New Definition of Greatness.
“If you want to be great – wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. That’s a new definition of greatness…it means that everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from the “Drum Major Instinct" sermon, given on February 4, 1968
