Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. King received the Nobel Peace Prize and led African Americans in the struggle for social change and racial equality for all people in the 1960s. His life will be documented in this presentation by Key Arts Productions from Philadelphia, including film footage, insightful commentary and live musical performances that capture the spirit of the civil rights movement.
