If you are looking for something to do today in Harlem let us recommend After Midnight – King’s Powerful Rebuke of the Vietnam War. It is a dramatic presentation highlighting two pivotal moments in the life and ministry of Dr. King…The March on Washington in 1963 and his powerful sermon in 1967 at The Riverside Church where he opposed the war in Vietnam. Today at The Riverside Church there will be two show times for this event, 4:30PM – 6:30PM and 7PM – 9PM. Please see below for further information and details.
After Midnight – King’s Powerful Rebuke of the Vietnam War
Featuring: Michael Green as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Conceived and staged by Michael Green
“Forty five years ago Martin Luther King Jr. became the first high profile figure to publicly denounce the war in Vietnam…one year later he was assassinated… but not silenced! Lets remember the King many try hard to forget.”
