Voices of praise for MLK
More than 300 voices
will be raised in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. during a gospel remembrance
for the famed civil rights leader at California State University, Sacramento
at 5 p.m., Monday, Jan. 19 in the University Union Ballroom.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Workshop Mass Choir, a multi-denominational group
coordinated by gospel great Dorothy Love Thornton, is set to perform what has
become an annual interracial commemoration of King’s life and legacy.
The tradition began more than a decade ago with performances at the Sacramento
Convention Center. The event came to CSUS in 2002, in part to mark the 35th
anniversary of King’s visit to the University on Oct. 16, 1967.
The previous performances have sold out, and this year’s celebration of
King’s fight for freedom, equality and dignity for all people is expected
to as well.
Tickets for the gospel concert are $10 in advance and $12 at the door and available
from the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or Tickets.com.
For more information, contact Kim Harrington at (916) 278-6327. Media assistance
is available from CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
