Where to go from here..
No matter how you feel about the 2016 election results, one thing’s for sure: 2017 is going to bring new voices to the forefront. As the country further discusses today’s most pressing issues, from inequality to housing, poverty and prison reform to education, it’s a perfect time to look back at one of America’s most important agitators for substantive, vital change.
On January 15th, Radio Station WNYC and the historic Apollo Theater celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. “Where Do We Go From Here? MLK and the Future of Inclusion” explores the future of social justice movements through one-one-one interviews, media presentations, and a series of panels with leading voices in journalism, politics, activism, and more.
This is the ideal forum for such a conversation. Opened in 1914, Harlem’s Apollo Theater plays a crucial role in American culture. The theater has showcased musical talents including James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr., and Lauryn Hill and aided in the emergence of jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, and soul. In sum: a quintessential cultural venue.
Events begin at 3:00PM. RSVP here.
