Dr. Martin Luther King takes place right here in Brooklyn, at BAM's 27th annual “Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” It starts at 10:30 a.m. at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in Fort Greene.
Harry Belafonte will be delivering the keynote address, and soulful music will be delivered by Brooklyn Interdenominational Choir, R&B duo Kindred the Family Soul, and more.
Many people participate in the day through acts of service. For volunteer opportunities, see The Coalition Against Hunger; I Love Franklin Avenue; www.nationalservice.gov/; or LIU.
