A commemoration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and featuring some of Northeastern’s own remarkable talent, this event will highlight jazz and blues music, in a jazz club atmosphere, in a nod to Dr. King’s enthusiasm for these genres. The event represents an opportunity for our community to enjoy and celebrate the musical, vocal and educational gifts that lie within the Northeastern family. These are the voices, the hands, the hearts that help shape who we are and that tell stories of courage and resilience.
