Stand Against Racism

The Martin Luther King Association works each year with the YWCA of Asheville in support of its Stand Against Racism program.

The 2018 Stand Against Racism, in conjunction with the Stephens-Lee Alumni Association, focused on “Celebrating the Legacy of African American Education Pioneers.” Held Friday, April 29, at the Stephens–Lee Center–the Castle on the Hill in Asheville’s historic East End–the program presented panel discussions on:

  • Early African American Educators
  • the Legacy of Isaac Dickson
  • the Legacy of Lucy Herring
  • the History of Stephens-Lee & other Feeder Schools
  • the First African American Students at Mars Hill College

Watch for information about our 2019 Stand Against Racism activities in coordination with YWCA.
