: A King Celebration 2011

Martin Luther King Jr Wikipedia

On this Martin Luther King Day, our entire show is devoted to a celebration of the life of Dr. King. Music was an important force in the civil rights movement, and important in the personal life of Dr. King as well. We'll hear performances from the annual King Celebration concert in his home town of Atlanta. We'll hear classical musicians talk about what King's legacy means to them. And the great American soprano Jessye Norman sings a traditional spiritual.
