Looking back

MLK Young Leaders Weekend is a three day pre-college program package that will focus on “looking back” into African American history. This year, join us as we look back at the great leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as well as the many efforts that took place beginning in Africa as slaves journeyed to the States. Participants will have a tour of the Underground Railroad journey in Detroit, MI, as well as be involved in workshops, a local church service, and have a few days to experience college life! You will not want to miss out!
