Mixed Blood Theatre's Dr. King's Dream visits NDSCS
Posted on 1/23/2013
Minneapolis' Mixed Blood Theatre's production of Dr. King's Dream will be performed on Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 2 p.m. in the Harry Stern and Ella Stern Cultural Center.
Dr. King's Dream celebrates the life and career of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in this acclaimed production drawn from his own letters, sermons, books and speeches, including the timeless "I Have A Dream." Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led American society through some of its most profound changes with passion, devotion and courage. This powerful biography illuminates why he is recognized as one of the greatest leaders and orators in American History and why he is honored with a national holiday each January.
Warren C. Bowles' commanding solo performance has been characterized as stirring and poignant. Bowles has toured for Mixed Blood as Dr. King since 1981.
Dr. King's Dream is one of four culturally specific productions touring this season by Mixed Blood Theatre, a Minneapolis-based multicultural theatre company founded in 1976. The others include Theory of Mind, about a young man on the autism spectrum; Daughters of Africa, a music-driven history of African American women; and African America, a look at recent immigrants to Minnesota from Somalia, Ethiopia and Liberia.
This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the NDSCS Diversity Council.
