50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s visit to Berlin

On Friday, September 12, a group of JFKS students from the elementary and high school participated in a memorial event celebrating the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s visit to Berlin organized by the US Embassy and the Stiftung Berliner Mauer.

Ms. Cook put together a vocal ensemble of 8-9th grade students for this occasion which provided the wonderful musical accompaniment for the celebration.

JFKS elementary students Chloe, Helena (both 4th grade) and James (6th grade) read their essays from this year’s Martin Luther King essay competition.

All JFKS students received very positive feed-back for their contributions and afterwards had a chance to meet Dr. Steele and Dr. LaFayette from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.


Other participants included students from the Rosa-Luxemburg-Gymnasium and the Ernst-Reuter-Oberschule.
