Letter from Birmingham Jail: Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Tribute at Washington National Cathedral
Advancement Project National Office is thrilled to once again support the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tribute at the Washington National Cathedral (3101 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20016). This year's service will include excerpts from, "Letter from Birmingham Jail," written by Dr. King in 1963.
Join us on Sunday, January 19, from 4-6 p.m. as we celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and examine his challenge to the church, particularly the lack of progress on behalf of our incarcerated Black and Brown neighbors.
Excerpts from Dr. King's "Letter" will be front and center with his words amplified by a reading from executive director Judith Browne Dianis, and musical performances from Washington Performing Arts Children of the Gospel Choir and the Cathedral Band.
This interfaith event is free and open to the public. All are welcome.
