Alabama State University will co-sponsor the sixth annual historic community-wide celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 17, at the historic Davis Theatre in downtown Montgomery. The theme of this year’s event is “Because of them, I am.”
The event, which is a mixture of music and drama, will feature the MLK Interfaith Community Choir and the ASU Dramatic Guild and ASU BFA Dance Company.
Performances will be held at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Tickets are $5 for the matinee and $10 for the evening show. Admission for children ages 10 and under is $7.50 for both performances.
Also during the event, a number of individuals will receive the Beloved Community Award, which commends residents for their exemplary work, leadership and commitment in building Dr. King’s ideal of the “beloved community.”
The goal of the community-wide MLK Celebration is to continue a much-needed dialogue around the teaching of tolerance, unity and peace in the Montgomery area.
The event is sponsored by Alabama State University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, Troy University and Friends of the ASU Theatre.
Tickets can be purchased on the day of the show at the Davis Theatre Box Office, 251 Montgomery Street, Montgomery, Ala.
