Martin Luther King Day Program

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Columbus Area Arts Council presents Coretta Scott King and the Fight for Freedom at 2:00 PM on Monday, January 19, 2015 in The Commons, 300 Washington Street, Columbus. This event is provided free of charge to the community.

Coretta Scott King and the Fight for Freedom tells the story of the woman behind the man. Born in Alabama, Coretta Scott King overcame childhood adversity in the segregated South and attended Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio.  A talented singer, she would go on to play an integral role in the American Civil Rights movement, not only as the wife of Dr. Martin Luther King, but as an independent woman.  She was an inspiration to the nation and the world. Coretta Scott King and the Fight for Freedom is produced by the Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati and performed by ArtReach, the Theatre’s touring company. It is a dramatic theatrical production with music and is particularly relevant for young people in grades 3-8. As with all previous Martin Luther King, Jr. Day performances, it is an intergenerational program that will be enjoyed by all ages.

Now in its third year, the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day performance is offered to the community as a way to spark conversation about civil rights, social justice, and equality. Observed on the third Monday of January, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a federal holiday that marks the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. Coretta Scott King and the Fight for Freedom comes with educational resource materials that teachers can utilize in their classrooms. Tami Sharp, program director of the Arts Council, has reached out to local educators to have this play incorporated into the discussion of civil rights and social justice in area classes. “We ask teachers to encourage their students to attend the performance. As an incentive, we hope teachers will provide an opportunity for extra credit for those students who attend,” said Sharp.

Sharp noted this event is held on a federal holiday when area schools are closed. The study guide is available on the Arts Council’s website at http://www.artsincolumbus.org/programs/martin-luther-king-jr-event/.

Sponsorship for this year’s performance is generously provided by the African American Fund of Bartholomew County and Taylor Bros. Construction Co., Inc.

The Columbus Area Arts Council is a public, not-for-profit corporation supported by private donations, the City of Columbus, the State of Indiana through the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
