On Saturday, April 11, 2020 the Illinois Commission on Diversity and Human Relations (ICDHR) will commemorate the 52nd anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg Illinois (Address: 1551 North Thoreau Drive, Schaumburg Illinois) with a "Commemoration Dinner and Concert" event (6:00 pm, VIP and general reception; 7:00 pm dinner; black tie optional).

The purpose of this event is to commemorate the 52nd anniversary of Dr. King's death by remembering and elevating the ideas for which he stood for.

The theme of this event is "Dr. King and His Music," which is a theme which addresses the divide that now exists throughout our nation.

They have received Pulitzer and Tony Awards, and have been honored by the National Endowment of the Arts.
