Celebrating MLK in Austin

Posted by

Google Fiber has supported the Austin Area Heritage Council’s MLK Oratory Competition in Austin, Texas, for the past six years. This extraordinary programs brings students from across the city together to deliver original speeches commemorating Dr. King’s ideals and principles and encourage his legacy of peace and racial equality. This year’s winner, Kennedi Jeffries, a student at Volma Overton Early College Prep, brought that legacy to life during the January 16th event. She was also invited to speak at the annual MLK Community March. Like Kennedi, we believe in fighting for future generations and we’re proud to help amplify Dr. King’s message in Austin. But please don’t take our word for it - you can listen to Kennedi’s entire speech in the video below. Congratulations to all the students who competed in this event!
