Dr. Martin Luther King Day Virtual Readings

Mon Jan 18 

Join Eastern State Penitentiary online as they commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his 1963 "Letter from Birmingham Jail.” Engage in special virtual readings from the landmark text – led by students, educators, activists, and community members – and respond to its relevance today. Between each session, special guests will provide space for reflection and connection as they share music, poetry, and art.

Reading Themes:

  • 11:00 am – 11:30 am ET – “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
  • 11:30 am – 12:00 pm ET – “Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever.”
  • 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm ET – “Why direct action?”
  • 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm ET – “The white moderate…”
  • 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm ET – “My dear fellow Clergymen…”
  • 1:30 pm – 2:00 pm ET – “The radiant stars of love…”

The event is comprised of six 30-minute, back-to-back sessions, so feel free to participate in just one session or tune in for all six.
