School: Morehouse College Major: Sociology Site: Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site
My name is Donovan A. Dodds, a rising senior, Sociology major at Morehouse College from Atlanta, Ga. After graduation, I am interested in pursuing a career in Community Outreach and Engagement. Specifically, I aspire to be the liaison and spokesperson for the community to better improve relations and represent the needs of the community. By serving as the HBCUI Summer Intern at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, I am looking forward to being immersed in the knowledge, history and legacy of fellow sociology major and Morehouse graduate, Dr. King. I will enjoy being able to share this along with some of my prior knowledge with visitors. From this experience I hope to learn about how Dr. King impacted the local community and how he represented their needs.
