On Monday, January 17, 2011 GRCC hosted the 25th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace March & Celebration at noon in the Ford Fieldhouse. We were pleased to welcome over 1,500 students and community members to participate in this year’s event. The event included a silent march throughout downtown Grand Rapids, followed by a program that featured music and presentation by elementary, high school and college students.  (Click Here for a Full Slideshow of all Images)
