Join us for a collaboration with the Ohio State University College of Social Work on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Through song, narration and images, we will commemorate the African American resistance to the violence and oppression that have defined the Black Experience in America.  RSVP to: Keith Kilty


To reflect upon 50 years since his assassination, we invite everyone across the globe to participate in "Sixty Seconds for Peace".  At the exact time of 6:01 PM Central Standard Time, we ask that all participants take a moment for peace and goodwill to mark the exact moment 50 years earlier when the world had to move forward without Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The observation of Sixty Seconds for Peace takes place during the "Music: The Voice for the Oppressed" program.
