The day to honor Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. has come and gone, but some local colleges and universities are celebrating his life this entire week. James Madison University's Center for Multicultural Student Services holds events all week in an effort to educate students on Dr. King's lessons. Wednesday JMU's chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha held "Unity Day." Members set up a stand for students to stop by and fill out blocks of character. On the blocks students wrote what steps they've taken to promote diversity on the campus and what they believe will continue to empower Dr. King's vision. "It's definitely about remembering the man and what he stood for, not just his birthday or just one day off, we try to make a whole week of events where we focus on different things that he believed in," says AKA Vice President Shemiqua Bauldie. All of the blocks of character will be laminated and unified for display on the last day of the event.
