An Evening of Celebration: Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through Art, Song, and Poetry

22

Jan

Join us Tuesday, January 22 at 5:30pm for an evening of celebration through art, poetry, and song. View our spring exhibition, Black River, featuring Greensboro-based artist Charles E. Williams. Works in the show bear witness to moments that chronicle his father’s personal struggles that challenged him as a son and tested his own spiritual beliefs.

The exhibition opening will lead into the Stone Center’s annual Martin Luther King Day celebration, He Was a Poem, He Was a Song. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to explore Dr. King’s legacy through music, dance, and spoken word. This year’s program will feature performances by:

  • the Mu Zeta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.,
  • Opeyo! Dance Company,
  • EROT,
  • poet Lee Chatman,
  • and poet Ashley Harris.

This event free and open to the public. Free parking is available after 5pm in the Bell Tower Deck, located directly behind the Stone Center.
