In memory of the life and accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr., Frostburg State University will hold its annual “MLK Celebration,” an evening of musical and dramatic presentations celebrating freedom and equality. The event will be held on Tuesday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of the Performing Arts Center.
The evening will feature performances by FSU faculty, staff and students. FSU students will perform a selection from “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone” by the late playwright August Wilson. Robin Wynder, director of the FSU Diversity Center, will present an original dramatic work called “Reflections,” which pays tribute to the lives of Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King. Both of these legendary civil rights activists passed away within the past year.
Musical selections for the evening will include performances by pianist Betty Jane Phillips, the FSU Chamber Choir and FSU’s Unified Voices Under God’s Dominion. A special multi-media educational display, featuring Dr. King and other leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, will be on exhibit in the Performing Arts Center lobby.
Please join this special celebration, which is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the FSU Office of the Provost at 301-687-4211.
