Blackout for Human Rights and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement (CBMA) host their second annual MLK Now at Riverside. MLK Now is a special MLK Day event to celebrate and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and explore how his message and vision continue to resonate in today's racial, social and political landscape. Taking place at Riverside - where Dr. King gave his famous 1967 speech, "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence" - the event will feature historic speeches performed by some of today's leading actors and artists. MLK Now 2017 will also include special live music performances and conversations.

If you can't make it to the event, it will be livestreamed - details forthcoming. Presenting and supporting partners for this year's event include PICO National Network,, Magnolia Pictures, Black Lives Matter, Dream Defenders, Color of Change, and ARRAY.
