Phil Darius Wallace will perform his one-man play “Martin Luther King Jr. — From the Heart of a King” on the life of the late civil rights leader Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Jobe Hall Auditorium. The show is free and open to the public.
“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — From The Heart of A King” takes the audience on a journey with Dr. King. Wallace shares moments from King’s life through song, dance, speeches and poetry. The performance helps to convey the power of the spoken word as well as the power of nonviolence to promote positive change.
