“King’s Dream” performance on Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Immaculata University will host a performance of “King’s Dream” on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 16, at 1 p.m. This free event, held in the Great Hall on the University’s campus, is open to the public.
The performance, presented by Key Arts Productions, is a moving tribute to the Nobel Peace Prize recipient who led America’s peaceful revolution for equal rights for all. Film footage, commentary, and live music tell the story of the Civil Rights movement, including events from King’s life and the historic contributions of Rosa Parks, the Arkansas Nine, Freedom Fighters, and others who risked everything for social justice and equal rights. The performance also chronicles the courageous attempts of American presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson to change social norms, while struggling with the complexity of global issues during the turbulent 1960s. Audiences will be both informed and inspired by this celebration of diversity, unity, and peace.
Each year, Key Arts Productions presents innovative multimedia performance theater in schools, colleges, and fine arts centers. The Philadelphia-based company offers widely acclaimed presentations blending video, thoughtful commentary, and rousing musical performance, providing entertainment and education. Since the debut of its first educational program in 1997, Key Arts Productions has become known for its diversity programming in the arts.
