    Please join together for Brookline’s celebration of the life and values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at 3 pm Monday, January 15, 2018, at the Coolidge Corner Theatre.

    The theme for this year’s event is “The Radical King– The Fierce Urgency of Now.” Dr. Chad Williams, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of African and Afro-American Studies at Brandeis University, is our keynote speaker. Dr. King, as civil rights activist and moral leader, was much more radical in his time than he is now remembered. Dr. Williams will ask us to think about how Dr. King’s words and actions can be applied to today’s troubling times. The program will also feature the poet/performer Regie Gibson, Brookline Poet Laureate Zvi Sesling and, from Brookline High School, slam poet Carolyn Parker-Fairbain and the acapella group Testostatones. This event is free. Reserved tickets are available on EventBrite at BrooklineMLK.eventbrite.com until Sunday, January 14. Sign language interpretation will be provided.
