Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebrated at National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is hosting its annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. virtually this year. After a year marked by racial violence and increased calls for social justice in a deeply divided nation, the Freedom Center looks to the example of Dr. King to unite people around the cause of equity and dignity with a message of recognizing our similarities and celebrating our differences. The King Legacy Celebration will be broadcast virtually at 9 a.m. Monday, January 18.

The King Legacy Celebration will feature performances from world-renowned baritone Reginald Smith, courtesy of Cincinnati Opera, the Cincinnati Black Theatre Company singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and “We Shall Overcome” and a spoken word performance from Walnut Hills High School student Zoe Cummings.

Registration for the King Legacy Celebration virtual program is $25. Visit freedomcenter.org/voice/event/king-legacy-celebration-21/ to register.
