| Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Celebration 2017: The Last Holiday- A Three-Part Interactive Presentation
Dana Center - (1D)
As an experiential and collaborative way of celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we will explore the cultural, historical, political, and aesthetic dimensions of twentieth-century African-American music in a series of three interactive presentations.
Beginning with the blues and jazz, including R&B, soul, and funk, and concluding with hip-hop and other contemporary sounds, these linked events will engage with the continuities and innovations of one of America's most distinctive cultural traditions: black music.
The presentation uses music to explore the political controversy over making Dr. King's birthday a national holiday-including performances by Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Gil Scott-Heron, and Public Enemy. Today, it may seem obvious to affirm King's dream for a revolution of values toward the creation of a beloved community, but this was not always the case.
Do you know in what year Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday was first observed as a holiday in all 50 states? It might be more recent than you would think.
Instead of a traditional lecture, this event will be structured as an interactive presentation, which encourages audience participation and concludes with an extended opportunity to discuss the controversial, compelling musical and political history of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
