Join Northfield’s performing artists- from all disciplines, all ages and all levels, novice to professional- for the annual evening of reflection on the life and work of Martin Luther King. The arts are the evening’s unifying factor. Music, dance, spoken word, poetry and visual art meld together into a performance that thoughtfully and intentionally speaks to the legacy Dr. King left us.
