‘Collage’ Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Through Poetry, Song
Last night the words and spirit of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. filled the African Community Theatre in Oscar Ritchie for the concert “Collage: Poetry and Music.” The concert was the Center of Pan-African Culture and the Department of Pan-African Studies’ annual program to celebrate the impact of King. It featured the Cavani String Quartet, the winner of the Naumburg Chamber Music Award, and Mwatabu Okantah, assistant professor of Pan-African Studies and author of several books of poetry. Okantah has also appeared in the United States, Canada and West Africa as a motivational speaker.
