Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
2017 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration


"In the End We will Remember not the Words of our Enemies but the Silence of Our Friends!"

Statement of Purpose
We come together today to celebrate and continue the work and mission of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1967 Dr. King said, "In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." We must hold ourselves accountable and strive to create a community when people scream "I cannot breathe" they are heard; a society where people seek refuge and they find open doors; a world where the suffering and deaths of hundreds will not be ignored. Today, we aim to create dialogue, followed by action, to re-engage the disenfranchised and amplify the voices of those who have been silenced.
