In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Saint Andrew’s invited Jason Craige Harris, a voice for healing and transformation, to speak with Middle and Upper School students.
Harris spoke with the Middle School about the power of storytelling and how the stories we tell can impact those around us. “Civil rights leaders like Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr spent their lives challenging harmful stories that ignored human dignity and inspired better stories to ensure that more people are treated with dignity and compassion,” Harris said.
Students were inspired by the stories told by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and his commitment to making a change while also challenging those who used storytelling as a means of discrimination.
While speaking to Upper School students, Harris explained that change could not be made without brave and courageous conversations.
Students engaged in lessons from the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Who created a powerful vision of a brave and beloved community where dignity and compassion all were defining features,” Harris said.
Students learned what it takes to help build a better world ––one brave and compassionate conversation at a time.
Jason Craige Harris regularly advises leaders from around the world on how to solve big problems and create lasting change. Harris is an educator, writer, researcher, storyteller, and expert in having great conversations and resolving conflicts.
