Presented by BAM, Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams, and Medgar Evers College of The City University of New York

New York City’s largest public celebration in honor of iconic civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. returns to BAM for the 31st year. This free event brings world-renowned activists, intellectuals, and civic leaders together with musicians, poets, and other performers to honor King’s legacy and keep his message alive.

This year, BAM welcomes keynote speaker Opal Tometi, a racial justice and immigrant rights activist and one of the founders of Black Lives Matter. The celebration also features performances by the Institutional Radio Choir, a gospel legend since its founding in Brooklyn more than half a century ago, and Sacred Steel band the Campbell Brothers, a quartet of siblings who’ve been rocking their steel guitar sound on the the gospel and blues circuit since 1997.

Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-seated basis starting at 8am in the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House lobby.
