The Best of the MLK, Jr. Day Writing Awards
Wednesday, November 1 at 7:00 pm
Come to Alphabet City for The Best of the MLK, Jr. Day Writing Awards presented by Carnegie Mellon University. Challenges to the Dream: The Best of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Writing Awards is an anthology that celebrates a writing contest that has invited Pittsburgh-area high school and college students to write honestly and creatively about race. The mission of the MLK Day Writing Awards is to create a space for daring, eloquent, and inventive work, in the belief that the process of writing itself can help young people explore and break down issues of difference in their lives.
