To celebrate Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, approximately 40 community-minded students and staff members from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, W.Va. (consisting of the members of the Multicultural Leadership Team and residential students), volunteered to make a difference at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.

"Instead of taking a day off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, these students graciously gave of themselves to improve their community", said Holly Morgan Frye, director of Student Community Services & Service Learning at Shepherd.

The students and staff volunteered to assist in painting furniture, moving items used in educational programming, and cleaning spaces to be used in a new exhibit that will ultimately serve in educating students visiting the park. The exhibit explains the often overlooked story of enslaved and free African-Americans just prior to the Civil War.
