In celebration of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, WNYC’s annual Martin Luther King Day celebration will return to the Apollo Theater for a special edition of the Apollo’s Uptown Hall series, which brings together Harlem audiences with scholars, community leaders, and activists to engage in conversation about King’s legacy and how his teachings affect us today. This year's event explores the 50 years since the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. WNYC’s Brian Lehrer will co-host this event with MSNBC's Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry as they guide us through the past half-century and explore the significant moments leading to today's democratic landscape in America.
This event is FREE and open to the public
* First admittance given to those who register.
