On Mon, Jan 18 at 10:30 AM at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, there’s a free, first come, first seated event in celebration of the life of Martin Luther King.
This year, BAM welcomes keynote speaker Danny Glover, the acclaimed actor, who has gained respect for his wide-reaching community activism and philanthropic efforts. He is also a UNICEF Ambassador and Chairman of the Board of TransAfrica Forum, a non-profit global justice organization focusing on issues facing African Americans and peoples in Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America.
Musical performances by The New Life Tabernacle Mass Choir and special guest Kenny Muhammad The Human Orchestra, who is widely regarded as one of the best beatboxers in the world, round out the program.
Following the event in the Opera House, BAM Rose Cinemas will present a free screening of the acclaimed documentary Soundtrack for a Revolution, executive produced by Danny Glover and shortlisted for a 2010 Oscar nomination.
