This stirring performance, based on the essential writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., opens with narration describing the tribulations of the Montgomery bus boycott. Dr. King’s testimony of these events is given in his passionate sermon “Early Days.” Next, the audience is transported to 1963 to witness Dr. King’s historical speech “I Have A Dream.” The Norm of Greatness also includes “The Drum Major Instinct,”The Eulogy,” and “I See the Promised Land.”
This performance was originally scheduled in March 2020 and then postponed. Free UD student admission made possible by the UD Wendt Center for Character Education, Black Student Union, and the William P. Woodward Visiting Artist-in-Residence Endowment.
