Since 1990, BAM has hosted a Tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. every January. In the past, the celebration has lasted the length of an entire weekend; this year’s 29th
annual version takes place in a single day, but that doesn’t make the program any less special. In addition to a keynote speech by Dr. Cornel West and musical performances from Sandra St. Victor & Oya’s Daughter and the New York Fellowship Mass Choir, the event features a screening of The Central Park Five, the 2012 documentary that tackled the infamous injustice of the eponymous case.
