AAMP’s 2018 MLK Weekend kicks off on Friday, January 12th with Passion, Progress & Pulchritude: An Evening of Poetry & Music. Then, the weekend continues from Saturday to Monday with three full days of interactive and enlightening arts activities, performances and workshops, including a Saturday film screening and discussion, the Citizens Bank Scavenger Hunt and Book Giveaway, and a Monday keynote address by Dr. Howard Stevenson, a University of Pennsylvania Professor of Africana Studies, and Executive Director of the Racial Empowerment Collaborative.
