NEW HAVEN - "Music and dance performances, educational activities and an invitational poetry slam drawing poets from around the country will highlight the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History's 16th annual two-day celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday," organizers said in a statement.
Events and activities "will help demonstrate how Dr. King strove to raise awareness about public health concerns and urban environmental issues that disproportionately affect minorities and low-income communities," the statement said.
"Sunday's activities will feature music and dance performances, storytelling and a teen summit focusing on Dr. King's message. World Stage performers include Premier Jazz Ensemble, African Arawak Connection and St. Luke's Steel Band." See a detailed schedule below.
