In the Name of Love: Musical Tribute Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This event has passed.

In the Name of Love is a stunning tribute to one of the greatest humanitarians of our time. With multi-talented singer/songwriter/actor Martin Luther McCoy; the Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, featuring the Dynamic Ms. Faye Carol and premiering a new body of work supported by the East Bay Community Foundation; the powerful 55-voice Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir; and the 300-voice Oakland Children’s Community Choir under the direction of Melanie DeMore; our 12th Annual Tribute promises to be a profound celebration of civil rights and an amazing evening of music.

Archival footage of Dr. King’s moving oratories will be interspersed throughout the evening, and the Oakland Citizen Humanitarian Award will be presented to an Oakland citizen working tirelessly to make a difference.
