This weekend is the fiftieth anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s visit to Plymouth Church, during which he delivered a sermon titled “The American Dream.” As Francesca Norsen Tate reports in the Eagle, the Church (Orange Street between Henry and Hicks) will mark the event with a forum beginning tomorrow (Saturday, February 9) at 10:00 a.m. with a film screening, followed by a recording of Dr. King’s sermon. There will be a break for lunch at noon, followed by a presentation by Laura Neubauer, Executive Assistant District Attorney in Charge of Human Trafficking at the Kings County District Attorney’s Office. She will be introduced by D.A. Charles Hynes.
The 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday will feature a sermon by The Reverend Dr. David Fisher and a performance by the Plymouth Church Choir of “Freedom Trilogy” by the composer Paul Halley.
