The 36th Annual Brooklyn Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join BAM in person or via livestream for this beloved Brooklyn tradition, which rings in a new year with music, dance, and an invigorating call to action. Led by keynote speaker Dr. Imani Perry, this year’s tribute encourages us to continue in Dr. King’s radical spirit: relentlessly pressing forward in pursuit of justice—even against the odds—and celebrating the strength and power of community to create change. This free event features speeches by civic leaders and activists and performances, including live appearances from singer Nona Hendryx with Craig Harris & Tailgaters Tales and Sing Harlem and a recorded dance piece by choreographer Kyle Marshall. Join us in hope and in solidarity! Plus, this year we’re expanding our tribute with a Celebration of Dr. King that includes a wide variety of free performances and events throughout the day.
