Join Project1VOICE’s global memorialization of the half-century anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination called SIX:01. Each day during the week of April 2-8 Project1VOICE invites concerned citizens and creative revolutionaries around the world to unite for sixty-one seconds of silence at 6:01 p.m. to find ways we can all become more informed and engaged in our communities and in the world. The goal of this call-to-action and community engagement event is to make 6:01 a.m. and p.m. daily reminders of Dr. King and the actions we must all take to make the world more just, equal and accepting. The hash tag for all social media posts is #SIX01
Join us on April 4, 2018 for Words of Change: Dr. Martin Luther King at the New School at 6:01 p.m. This special staged reading will memorialize the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination and the Civil Rights Act of 1968. The reading will use as its centerpiece a recently recovered speech Dr. King delivered at the New School on February 6, 1968 called the Summer of our Discontent. In the speech Dr. King details the reasons for civil rights activism in 1963. Many of the speeches themes are still a part of the national and global conversations we are having today. This speech was part of a 15-part lecture series on race in America at the New School .
The performance is free and tickets reservations are required. Copy and paste the press release and for all the details including how to watch via livestream anywhere in the world below:
