Celebrating greatness

The 10th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day will take place at the Charles H. Wright Museum on Monday January 18, 2010.  A Breakfast celebration will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.  The cost of the breakfast for non-members is $35.00 and for members is $30.00.

The schedule for the day is filled with movie screenings, workshops, and performances.  Everyone will be able to participate in the activities with normal museum admission prices.  For more information on admission prices go to www.maah-detroit.org/plan_your_visit/general_info.html.

Film screenings will consist of "Our Friend Martin" at 10:00 a.m., "Soundtrack For a Revolution" at 11:00 a.m., and "Amandla! A Revolution in Four Part Harmony" at 2:00 p.m.  Theatrical performances will consist of  "Ella Baker: If You Don't Want to Know Don't Ask" at 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  "The Meeting" at 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.  The play is  based on a fictional meeting  between Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.  It will be performed by the Rochester College Theatre Department.

Let's be honest, most people spend this day enjoying the day off from work or school.  The most talk or thought of Martin Luther King Jr. is in a passing conversation, or maybe by watching a special on Tv.  Why not take the opportunity to participate and share with others.  For more information on The 10th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day go to www.maah-detroit.org/mlk_2010/index.php.
