Berklee’s fourth annual MLK Celebration Series will engage the Berklee community and the public in celebration and discussion of furthering the work of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This event aims to embolden activists and demonstrate what it means to mobilize, educate, and elevate the work suggested by the life and legacy of Dr. King.

Featured guest artist India.Arie, known for her abilities to heal and empower communities, will perform a short set of her incredible music. Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot—Berklee trustee, Harvard professor, and prolific activist—will deliver the keynote address and share the stage with Bill Pierce, chair of Berklee’s Woodwinds Department, who will also perform. Following the performance, the Bill Pierce MLK Scholarship will be awarded to the 2017 recipient. All of this will be supported by the talents and leadership of Berklee students.
