Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church presents an Alabama Bicentennial event titled A 200 Years’ Conversation: Where Do We Go from Here? on Saturday, December 14, 2019, from 1pm to 4pm in the historic sanctuary and museum at 454 Dexter Avenue, Montgomery, Alabama 36104.
The event, offered as a recognition of Alabama’s bicentennial and is supported by a grant from the Bicentennial Committee, will take an in-depth look at the role of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in the development of faith, service, and activism in the city of Montgomery and the state of Alabama. Some of the church’s living pastors will reflect on their time as Dexter’s spiritual leader as well as the blessing and weight of serving in the shadow of Dr. Martin Luther King’s world-renowned time as pastor there.
Highlighting the round tables will be dynamic performances of Dr. King’s I Have a Dream speech by Alabama State University Theatre alumni Alonzo Caldwell, dance from current BFA Dance major Ke’Yana Paradise Robinson, a presentation by Valiant Cross Academy, and music from Montgomery’s own Robert E. Lee High School Chorale.
