Traverse City Students Prepare for Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. Remembrance Day

Posted: Updated:

Monday, we remember Doctor Martin Luther King Junior, and some area students are already preparing for a special event where he is the main focus.

Monday, at the State Theatre, in Traverse City, West Senior High School theatre students will be hosting the event and reading excerpts from many of King's memorable speeches. There will also be more than 100 local choir students performing at the event; the headliner is the Brazeal Dennard Choir, the country's oldest African American choir, from Detroit. The students involved say it's a special experience.
