Experience the brilliance of Coretta Scott King through this new work presenting a freedom concert and an exploration her legacy.
Each year, we host an annual event in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For over 30 years, we have celebrated his legacy through our Joyful Noise concert with Harlem Gospel Choir. This year, returning from a 2 year hiatus due to the pandemic, we will be reimagining the event to focus on the legacy of Coretta Scott King, who's role in the Civil Rights Movement is often underrepresented. In fact, she presented concerts to fund the movement, and was responsible for the salaries of many of the men employed at the SCLC! In Hear Her Sing for Freedom, a new work to be performed on January 13th-16th, visitors will have the chance to experience what it might have been like to witness Coretta Scott King perform a Freedom Concert.
