Description

The world lost a great leader on April 4, 1968 when an assassin’s bullet took the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The shot that killed Dr. King was fired in Memphis, TN, however it was felt throughout the world. Fifty years later, R & R Youth and Community Empowerment Organization and community partners will commemorate the great life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by presenting a series of tributes across America. This powerful tribute will feature a stage drama entitled “Trashing the King”, written by Birmingham Playwright Dr. George W. Stewart. Additional features of this memorable tribute will entail the awarding of the “Dream Keepers Award” to 100 extraordinary individuals in the tri-county community, a VIP Reception, Red Carpet Photo Shoot, Memorabilia Souvenir Booklet, and more.
