The annual Martin Luther King Jr. march was held Monday, Jan. 17, drawing more than 100 participants, young and old.

The march followed livestreamed readings on social justice from the Coretta Scott King Center at Antioch College, and preceded the day’s program, also livestreamed. The annual program included singing by the World House Choir and the presentation of the 2022 Peacemaker Award, which was presented posthumously to Karen McKee, who died in December 2021. 

A full article about the annual program and the presentation of the Peacemaker Award will appear in the Jan 20 issue of the News.

The livestreamed programs are available for viewing on the Yellow Springs Community Access YouTube channel.

  1. I wrote a book about ‘The Other America, in Trump’s shadow’ in 2020, in Dutch. My Yellow Springs and Antioch experiences in 1970’s are a huge part of it. I am the ex-partner of Antioch prof Ludo Abicht, and good friend of Bob Atkins, Andy Winnick and Carol Pierson. I’d love to be back on campus with you all! I live in Antwerp, Belgium. everyone from Antioch always welcome here!

  2. I have lived in Yellow Springs and loved Antioch college during the years 1968-1977. Please keep me posted! Those years changed my life!
    I am a friend of oldtimers Julia Reichert, Bob Atkins, Andy Winnick, Carol Pierson,David Cooper, etc and working on a podcast about this period of my life. Bart Abicht is my son, who spent his childhood in Yellow Springs and had a happy life there.
