Assassinated in 1968, Martin Luther King was the non-violent champion of the 1950s and 1960s US Civil Rights movement that stopped legal discrimination against non-white citizens.
His movement, remembered for the 1963 “I have a dream,” speech, which envisaged a country void of segregation and racism, was also marked by great music, songs and poetry.
But legislation has not eliminated the deep-rooted ideology of racism. A rich artistic diversity which stands against it has become part of main-stream culture, as relevant today as ever.
Revisit some of the art and dramatic stories of the Civil Rights movement as part of Black History Month with Global Fusion Music and Arts at Greenwich Theatre.
