The 41st Anniversary Celebration at MSU will take place as a week-long celebration starting Sunday, January 17, 2021.
COGS representatives are part of the 2021 MLK Commemorative Celebration Planning Committee which is proud to recognize the Honorable John Robert Lewis, a civil-rights leader who served in the United States House of Representatives for Georgia’s 5th congressional district from 1987 until his death in 2020 from pancreatic cancer. During his youth, Mr. Lewis also served as the chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee from 1963 to 1966.
This year’s theme, “Good Trouble: Reclaiming Our Democracy, Demanding Social Justice”, reflects the legacy of Mr. Lewis. In fact, he coined the phrase, good trouble, when he would frequently tell audiences across the nation, “Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and redeem the soul of America.”
The Planning Committee has a broad line-up of activities being coordinated for the University community. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate.
