We look forward to celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday with this annual free and family-friendly event featuring contemporary poets and actors reading historic speeches from King, Frederick Douglass, Fannie Lou Hamer, and others.
This Folger Shakespeare Library Poetry program was created in 2006. Previous readers include: Jericho Brown, Reginald Dwayne Betts, Julian Randall, Joseph Ross, Melanie Henderson, DeMaris Hill, and more.
In the spirit of the day we collect dry and canned food donations for the food pantry of our neighbor on Capitol Hill, the Lutheran Church of the Reformation.
