Part of Education series Grades 9—12

Join us for a special screening, just for teens, of the 35th Annual Brooklyn Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This virtual watch party is followed by an open space discussion facilitated by BAM staff. As we conclude a year where young people were at the forefront of global calls for justice and equality, your reflections on the fight for civil rights—both historically and today—are a critical part of determining the road ahead.

This year’s tribute to Dr. King features music, poetry, dance, speeches by civic leaders and activists, and a keynote address by Alicia Garza, author of The Purpose of Power, principal at Black Futures Lab, and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network. The event draws inspiration from Dr. King’s words, his life, and the actions of those around us who continue the fight, to begin the new year with a message of hard-earned hope.
