Click image to download "The Other America..." Presenter toolkit
Come experience a powerful concert of emotionally-gripping original music and special arrangements of historically-relevant music to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his ideas. When most folks think of Dr. King, they immediately gravitate to his iconic “I Have A Dream” speech. However, his vision and understanding of America’s problems run much deeper than that single speech.
This event is an artistic exploration of Dr. King's less-talked-about speech, “The Other America”, primarily using live musical performance and video. Parallels will be drawn between this speech (given more than 50 years ago) and issues of the current day to show how King's America and the America of today share much in common. Artist Victor Haskins leads his world-class ensemble in transporting the audience on a journey to take a closer look at our present times through the lens of the past.
