Brockton, MA (February 7, 2014) – On Monday, January 20, 2014, members of the Massasoit community gathered with members of the larger Brockton community, several elected officials and other distinguished guests for the College’s 12th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration. Those in attendance enjoyed a diverse array of presentations, speakers, and activities in honor of the late civil rights activist. The event featured Mr. Jass Stewart, a Brockton city counselor-at-large, as the keynote speaker.

“Sometimes we forget that what we have in common are the imperfections, and it’s these imperfections that allow us not only to empathize, which is important, but to sympathize with others,” said Mr. Stewart.

Another highlight of the event was a beautiful musical duet, entitled “When You Believe,” performed by Carla Ribeiro, artist and youth outreach worker, and Elisabeth Alleyne Dorsey, artist/educator and member of the President’s Community Advisory Council.
