Songs of Social Justice Live Concert

in Events by

As Senator Orrin Hatch finally leaves the United States Senate the legacy of Martin Luther King Day will come to pass. Hatch and many Republicans in Congress voted against honoring the Civil Rights Movement and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a holiday as recent as 30 years ago. The legislation introduced by Congressman John Conyers was later supported in music by Stevie Wonder with the ‘Happy Birthday’ song which reigned in support throughout America.

January 14, 2018, you will have the chance to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in song with Pastor David Alexander Bullock. At the historic Baker’s Keyboard Lounge the music of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and Nina Simone will feel the room for the ‘Songs of Social Justice Concert.’ Marches, speeches, and luncheons all played a pivotal role in the Civil Rights movement. Music is a component often lost in the fight for human rights and social justice throughout America.

Learn about Reverend Bullock’s take on Social Justice and music. Also, find out the role Mahalia Jackson played in making sure Dr. King stayed focused on his work.
