MLK-DayJoin the St. John’s community as some of the finest regional vocalists, including the Queen Sisters, Chozen, the Gospel Truth, and the All Children’s Chorus, perform inspiring gospel spirituals at the annual “Lift Every Voice” concert honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The community is invited to this spirited, uplifting concert, and to take part in seminars in which participants discuss a reading relevant to human and civil rights. The seminars and concert are free and open to the public and will take place on January 10 and 11.

The seminars will be held on Saturday, January 10, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in Mellon Hall classrooms. Arrive at 9:30 a.m. to check in and for refreshments. St. John’s tutors will lead small groups of participants in a discussion of two readings: an excerpt from “The Souls of Black Folk” by W.E.B. DuBois and Claude McKay’s poem, “America.” The seminars are free; however, advance registration is required. To register and download the readings, visit: www.sjc.edu/mlk-events

The “Lift Every Voice” concert will be held on Sunday, January 11, at 4 p.m. in the Francis Scott Key Auditorium. No tickets or reservations are required; however, seating is limited.
