Boston Public Schools hosted its 37th Annual MLK Celebration on Thursday, January 17th at The Strand Theatre. The Celebration was also live-streamed on Video-on-demand clips of the entire Celebration can be played via the media carousel above.

The event was open to the public and featured visual and performing arts students performing to honor civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Features included music and dance ensembles, student-produced videos, and spoken-word performances by winners of the annual history essay contest.

Each performance intertwined to celebrate and reflect on Dr. King's words and legacy as we live it today by connecting with a passage from one of the civil rights leader's speeches or his overarching themes of non-violence, justice, hope, community and equality.
