“Where Do We Go from Here? MLK and the Future of Inclusion”

The Apollo Theater, 253 W 125th St, Sun. 15, 3 p.m., Free with R.S.V.P.

Dr. King’s final manuscript, “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” details his plans about amending wage inequality, preventing poverty and improving housing and education for the African-American community. After what is notably one of the most diverse and general elections in recent history, WNYC and the Apollo teamed up for a fourth year to revisit Dr. King’s work and assess the future of social justice after the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. The radio station and theater are joined by a multitude of activists and experts such as Justice Writer Shaun King and President of Brooklyn NAACP L. Joy Williams to address a series of topics, including how we can all work together to create change.

New York Jewish Film Festival
