Students from the University of Jaffna joined an event held by the US Consulate in Chennai to mark Black History Month.
The Jaffna students joined in with the event, a screening of a documentary on black civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, via video conference.
The screening was held at the same hall in Presidency College where King had addressed students during a historic visit to Chennai fifty years ago.
Students from Jaffna and Chennai engaged in a discussion on King’s legacy following the screening. The discussion was moderated by an officer from the US Consulate.
