Honoring Dr. King
“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr (1929-1968)
We pause this week to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and to consider how we can honor his legacy through public service and activism within our own community. As we do, we share this recording of Let Us Break Bread Together, arranged for brass quintet by Jack Stamp.
Let Us Break Bread Together is an African American spiritual that originated in the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor of coastal Southeastern America and was famously sung by contralto Marian Anderson and baritone Paul Robeson.
