Ferndale Schools MLK Peace Walk Tradition Marches On

Ferndale, MI – Several Lower Elementary families met outside the school on Jan. 18 to continue a school tradition, the annual Peace Walk to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The families held signs and marched around the building and down the block to celebrate peaceful protest, solidarity, and racial justice.

“The Peace Walk at Ferndale Lower Elementary is a long time tradition in our community and an important opportunity to honor Dr. King along with the men and women who stood for justice and fairness” said Superintendent Dr. Dania Bazzi. “As we begin this new year and continue these old, old struggles, my hope is that the content of our character may lead this country to a brighter tomorrow, with liberty and justice for all.”

The event was an impromptu homage organized by parents who wanted to keep the tradition, and King’s dream, alive.
