Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe to Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY JAN 6, 2021

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe invites the community to celebrate the rich legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with “MLK: Celebrating His Legacy in Spoken Word and Song.” The production, which will be available for free streaming on WBTT’s website from January 16-18, features re-enactments of Dr. King’s speeches, song and dance. The program was recorded during WBTT’s 2019 performance at the Booker High School Visual and Performing Arts Theatre. "At our organization, we promote and celebrate the African-American experience. Dr. King's leadership during the Civil Rights Movement is a major part of that experience and we are proud to honor his enduring legacy,” said WBTT executive director Julie Leach. "While we are disappointed we can’t bring this program to the community live this year, we are thankful that technology allows us to offer the program free and widely, for all to enjoy."
