Brooklyn Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The 34th Annual Brooklyn Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


New York City’s largest public celebration in honor of iconic civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., returns to BAM for the 34th year. BAM welcomes all members of the community for this beloved annual tradition, which brings together world-renowned activists, public figures, and civic leaders alongside musicians and other performers.

Join us in paying tribute to King’s legacy—this year featuring keynote speaker Nikole Hannah-Jones and musical guests Son Little and the Brooklyn Interdenominational Choir—to help keep his message of equality, peace, and hope alive.

This full day of free events also includes a screening and an art exhibition entitled Picture the Dream (on view through February 27), and the weekend prior we host free live music performances at BAMcafé.
