Holy Cross Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day

January 18th, 1999 by 

WORCESTER, Mass. – The Sights and Sounds of the Civil Rights Movement, a multi-media presentation, will be shown on Wed. Jan. 20 at 4 p.m., in the St. Joseph Memorial Chapel at Holy Cross.  This event is in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his work with the Civil Rights Movement.

Written and produced by Junius W. Williams, Esq., the exhibition includes dramatic readings and slides.  The Freedom Songs, spirituals of slaves that later became an integral part of the Civil Rights Movement, will also be featured.

“It is in the music, in conjunction with authentic slides of people and events of the Movement, that enables the viewer and listener of ‘Celebration’ to become a part of the panorama of the history as it unfolds.  It enables you to feel the people, the hopes and aspirations, and the drama that was the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s,” says Williams.

The Sights and Sounds of the Civil Rights Movement is presented in association with Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
