Join renowned storyteller Valerie Tutson for a program honoring the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King, Jr and the Civil Rights Movement. This family-friendly program will include songs (can’t do Civil Rights Movement without singing!) and stories of people who walked along side Dr King, who were inspired by and a part of the Movement, as well as a personal story Valerie calls “Carleen and Me and Dr King’s Dream,” which explores a personal story of an interracial friendship in the early days of school/neighborhood integration.
Be moved to build a better tomorrow by the songs of the civil rights movement which fueled the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr King was a civil rights icon who spoke at Lexington High School on February 11, 1963.
