Today we celebrate the work and life of Martin Luther King, Jr.

This day is especially relevant to Tri-Kap historically. Dr. King visited Dartmouth in 1962 and gave a speech entitled "Towards Freedom" in Dartmouth Hall 105. Afterwards, he came to our house for a reception. Tri-Kap was chosen because, as a local fraternity, we had a diverse brotherhood that was not restricted by most national organizations' strict segregation policies.

After the reception at 1 Webster, Dr. King famously stated: "Well, that's the best KKK meeting I've ever been to."

The full transcript of his speech can be read here.

Matt Brown at the Dartmouth Relays

We had the pleasure of seeing Matt Brown '05 compete in the Dartmouth Relays today, Sunday January 10 as a shot-putter.

Matt embraces Eric Larson '10, Michael Brasher '10, and Andrew Jean-Louis '09 at Leverone Field House

He came in third place!

Matt winds up to hurl

We offer our sincerest congratulations to Matt as an exemplar of post-graduate athletic excellence.

Enjoy this video of Matt's incredible toss at the Relays. Way to place, Big P!
