MLK Jr. Week: The Movement: 50 Years of Love & Struggle
Date: 7:00pm PST January 25 Location: Council Chamber
Sponsored by the Lewis & Clark Chamberlin Lectureship Endowment:
The Movement: 50 Years of Love and Struggle is a visual chronicle which highlights many of the political, social and cultural markers of the roughly 50 years since passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This theatrical production features Emmy Award winning actor Ron Jones. Jones plays multiple characters and takes the audience on a journey through the ever-changing face of the African American experience. Supported by interactive video, stock historical footage, quotes, and some of the most memorable music of the last two generations, Jones weaves the tapestry of struggle and triumph.
The performance will be followed up by an open discussion with the audience.
