WPI’s Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Address 2021



The DEI Team Presents:

A Movement Towards Healing, Liberation and Positive Mental Health
WPI’s Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Address

February 16, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:30 PM EST


The DEI team strives to foster a culture of inclusion and belonging through multi-modal educational opportunities that build agency and social responsibility towards greater equity and social justice. In honor of Dr. Rev Martin Luther King Jr., we invite you to join us for an intimate panel discussion on recognizing and navigating internalized oppression towards healing, liberation, and positive mental health. Our guest speakers:  Dr. Menah Pratt-Clarke and Anna Malaika NtiAsare-Tubbs will examine how, now more than ever, we as a community can strengthen our engagement with DEI through a deeper understanding of MLK’s legacy.


This year's commemorative address will be presented via an intimate panel discussion. With the historical significance of last year’s traumas and movements towards liberation, this powerful format will best help us unpack some of our internalized oppression and curate pathways towards greater healing, liberation, and positive mental health.

Black Heritage Month: Office of Multicultural Affairs

The Office of Multicultural Affairs fosters a campus community that respects and celebrates diversity in all its dimensions, including but not limited to differences of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, and physical ability.

OMA serves as a home base for students navigating the university experience—especially a challenging STEM path where diversity is essential. Some are first-generation students, some are students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, and some are looking for a community where they will thrive. We offer support, resources, tools, and direction to all WPI students through engaging initiatives, programs, and services. 

OMA staff members promote social justice, equity, and multicultural awareness while also providing the close community students need to achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. Students connect with each other and find a network that lasts long after graduation.
