Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. virtual event will be held Monday, January 18, 2021 at 12:00 p.m – 5:00 p.m. The event will be streaming on www.worldartsfoundation.org, Open Signal, KBOO 90.7 FM, XRAY 107.1 FM, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch.

This retrospective program draws from the World Arts Foundation's legacy hosting a community event honoring Dr. King's work. Our events have connected local performing artists and community leaders to underserved communities of color since 1978. This year's program film features performing artists, activists, public officials, businesses, choirs, and youth who have participated in this event over the years. Through a combination of archival footage and contemporary interviews, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" draws inspiration from Dr. King's mission to ensure peace, social justice, civil rights, and human dignity for all.

Sponsors for the event include Portland Public Schools, Portland Association of Teachers, City Of Portland, Oregon Education Association, Portland General Electric, TriMet, Oregon Community Foundation (Fred W. Field Fund), Moda Health, Fortress Property Management, State Farm (Cedric R. Berry Agency), Portland General Electric, Holocene, Open Signal, KBOO 90.7 FM, XRAY 107.1 FM, and KBMS 1480 AM.
