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

For more information, contact Kim Harrington at (916) 278-6327. Media assistance is available from CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
