Daniel CEO Discusses MLK’s Legacy for Children

It’s all too easy for children to view Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as just an extra day off from school. Our public relations team arranged for Jim Clark, a licensed clinical social worker and president and CEO of Daniel, to discuss the importance of celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. King with children on WJXT4: The Local Station yesterday.

Clark explained how teachers and parents can use the holiday as an opportunity to teach children how Dr. King’s leadership changed the face of a nation and help them better understand the struggles people faced while fighting for racial equality.

Some qualities all children can learn from Dr. King’s life include:

  • Equality
  • Power of Words
  • Faith
  • Nonviolence
  • Hope
