Please join us for Brookline's celebration of the life and values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at 3PM 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 but to guarantee a seat you must reserve a ticket beforehand. Reserved tickets are available on EventBrite at BrooklineMLK.eventbrite.com until Sunday, January 14. On the day of the event, Monday, January 15, any remaining tickets will be available only at the Coolidge Corner Theater box office when it opens.


Sign language interpretation will be provided. The Coolidge Corner Theater is accessible to persons with disabilities.
