The Apollo has a decades-long tradition of serving as a convener for our community as well as people from across New York City. That tradition continues as The Apollo partners with WNYC in our 18th annual celebration of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his enduring legacy on the culture.

This year’s presentation focuses on a renewed commitment to understanding the context, confronting the complexity, and elevating our collective consciousness in the face of injustice and discrimination.

NPR’s Notes from America host, Kai Wright moderates the first hour of this year’s celebration. Music, spoken word and other forms of creative expression round out the afternoon. Please check back for additional information about this program.

In collaboration with March On Washington Film Festival.

Uptown Hall: The Inconvenient King is part of The Apollo’s Winter/Spring 2024 season.
