RAPP Participates in City-Wide MLK March

Yesterday, a group of UC students participated in a city-wide march and memorial service to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  The events were coordinated by the local Martin Luther King Coalition.

Some snapshots from the day:

To help folks be able to participate, RAPP provided bus tokens to and from downtown for any UC student interested.  Nineteen of us rode down together - for several, it was their first trip on a public bus.

We doubled our group size at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for the kick-off of the march.  In this shot are RAPPers from RAPPs XXII, XXIII, XXIV, XXV, and XXVI!

At Fountain Square we ran into Dean Bowen!  Thanks to Mieshia for suggesting we get a group shot with him!  From left to right:  Sara (XXVI), Julianna (XXVI), Mieshia (XXIV), Dean Frank Bowen, Rebecca (XXII), Maggie (XXV), Stephanie (XXIV), Meagan (XXV), and Zina (XXV).

We kept gaining and losing folks on our way, so there are a few new faces in this final group shot in front of Music Hall, where the annual memorial service was held.

Many thanks to all the Bearcats who came out to show that UC is keeping the dream alive!
