Join us on April 3, 2018 as we mark the 50th anniversary-eve of the untimely assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr with

Stirring the Waters, an inspiring concert production that traces a chronology of the Civil Rights Movement from 1954-1968,

recounting the seminal events that shaped this American freedom movement through inspiring music and dramatic recitations.

Celebrated community and civic leaders will also join to render readings that rekindle King’s social-justice call to action. ​​
