WNYC & The Apollo Theater Present: "Apollo Uptown Hall: MLK — Blueprint for the Culture"
Sunday, January 15, 2023 | 3 p.m.
Watch a livestream of the event here:
The 17th annual Apollo Uptown Hall MLK celebration focuses on Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement of the 60's as the template for modern social and civil justice movements. This year, we celebrate young people impacting society through activism, engagement and a commitment to justice.
The Apollo has a decades-long tradition of serving as a convener for local community residents as well as people from across New York City. That tradition continues as the Apollo partners with WNYC in our annual celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his enduring legacy on the culture.
On Sunday, January 15 at 3 p.m. Notes from America host Kai Wright moderates the first hour of this year’s celebration. Then we'll round out the afternoon with music, spoken word and other forms of creative expression hosted by WQXR's Terrance McKnight. Stay tuned for visits from some special guests, including a virtual appearance by WNYC’s Brian Lehrer.
