“An inspiring cultural and community hub where residents of all ages can explore the importance of unity, conversation, and action.” —NextPittsburgh
KST joins with a broad range of community partners to offer a day full of inspiring performances and activities to celebrate the legacy of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The family-friendly day affirms MLK’s example of activism and shows young people they can make a difference as community mobilizers and innovative artists. It is an opportunity for residents to gather together to honor the neighborhood’s diversity and the strength and resilience of its residents.
The daylong event kicks off with family friendly activities hosted by Braddock Library, BOOM Concepts, New Voices Pittsburgh, Centre for Creative Reuse, and Assemble PGH. At 2pm this years host Dustin Gibson will join us on stage featuring performances by exciting local community partners including, Blak Rapp Madusa, Hope Academy, Nick Daniels – The DANA Movement Ensemble 2.0, Alumni Theater Company, and, Dreams of Hope!
