Free Event Held in T.C. to Honor Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. at State Theatre

Posted: Updated:

Today a free event in Traverse City was held to celebrate the life and teachings of Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior.

A free performance titled Freedom Sounds was put on at the State Theatre.

The Human Rights Commission got together with Building Bridges with Music to organize the event that featured a folk singer and historian Ray Kamalay.

Kamalay discussed how music during the Civil Rights Movement reflected what was going on in society at that time.

Freedom Sounds was a part of the Embrace The Dream Campaign lasting from now until March in Traverse City.
