Alabama State University Co-Sponsors with Troy; a Citywide Celebration/Awards to Honor Dr. King (760 hits)

WHEN: Jan. 16 (Tuesday) at both 10 a.m. & 6 p.m.
WHERE: The Davis Theater, 251 Montgomery St., in downtown Montgomery.

Alabama State University's College of Visual and Performing Arts and the Friends of the ASU Theatre are partnering with Troy University to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The public is invited to join Alabama State University and Troy University for the fourth annual citywide MLK Community Celebration to honor the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Tuesday (Jan. 16), at the historic Davis Theatre, located at 251 Montgomery St., in downtown Montgomery. Performances will be held at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and tickets are $5 for the matinee and $10 for the evening.

The event, “A Message for the Future from Keepers of the Dream,” reflects the desire of Dr. King and his followers for America to move forward as it continues to bond as a community, which does not use race as a factor or basis for anything..

The citywide community celebration is directed by Dr.Tommie H. Stewart, dean of ASU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts (and an acclaimed Hollywood actress), and features spirituals and contemporary music by an interfaith, citywide choir; dramatic presentations and dances by local actors, and recognition awards to local residents who have kept Dr. King's 'dream' alive.

“This event will demonstrate a concerted effort from our culturally diverse community to exhibit peace, unity and love -- embracing Dr. King’s concept of the Beloved Community,” said Dr. Tommie H. Stewart.

SPECIAL AWARDS PRESENTATION
A number of individuals from the Montgomery area will receive the Beloved Community Award, which commends residents for their exemplary work, leadership and commitment in building their own version of Dr. King's “Beloved Community.”

The event is sponsored by Alabama State University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, Friends of the ASU Theatre and Troy University.
