About this Event
A Virtual Celebration Recognizing Dr. King’s Vision of a Beloved Community:
• The Great Gatherings for Black Lives Matter
The diverse marches to end police violence brought together black, brown, white, old and young, gay and straight by the tens of thousands across the country and around the world to demand justice and respect for our Black brothers and sisters.
• The Great Frontline Heroes of the Covid-19 Pandemic
Doctors, nurses, technicians, service people, teachers, mail carriers, grocery clerks, firefighters – the list goes on and on of people who are risking their lives for the rest of us in the midst of this pandemic.
Words of Dr. King and music performed by local actors and musicians including Andre Lee Ellis, DiMonte Henning, Dorothy James, David Nunley, Juli Wood, Robin Pluer.
