Event Description

"What did Dr. King say? And what will we do?" is the theme for Culver City's 9th Annual Celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The day-long celebration will feature a special screening of the epic  1970 Sidney Lumet film, "King:  A Filmed Record. . . . from Montgomery to Memphis."  The film chronicles the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from the beginning of the Civil Rights movement in Montgomery, Alabama and culminating with his 1968 assassination in Memphis.  The keynote presentation will be given by Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith of Agape International Spiritual Center.  Other activities include a panel discussion on the impact of Dr. King's legacy; a dramatic rendition of Dr. King's "I have a Dream Speech" by Actor Gerald Rivers;  the debut of "Ways to Practice Nonviolence" public service announcement created by members of Culver City Teen Center and edited by animator Bruce Heller; and a special performance by Singer-Songwriter Rickie Byars Beckwith, Music and Arts Director of the Agape International Spiritual Center.  The event is free. 

Culver City's MLK celebration will start at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 18, at the Culver City Senior Center, 4095 Overland Avenue in Culver City.  For more information, call (310) 253-6675 or visit www.culvercity.org.
