Book Now - 020 8365 5450.
Reverend Jesse Jackson will join us at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre on Thursday 5th September (start 2pm) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech. The event will last for one hour and 30 minutes.
For a reminder of Jesse Jackson’s outstanding contributions to political life and the civil rights movement, check out coverage of the event by the Evening Standard and also by the Tottenham and Wood Green Journal.
At the special occasion Jesse Jackson will talk about issues of social justice in the UK and US and will be introduced by the screening of a rare piece of archive footage which has recently come to light. Few people realise that Martin Luther King visited the UK and this fascinating footage features MLK giving a speech in Newcastle just a week before he died.
Tickets are free, but have to be booked through our box office on 020 8365 5450.
