Middle schoolers from Chicago perform at MLK Historic Site

Prior to the Martin Luther King Jr. march, an Oak Park, IL middle school broke out in song and dance for spectators. The students had come to the Atlanta metro area on Thursday to participate in the National Junior Theater Festival at the Cobb Galleria and had won an “Outstanding Production” award. Staying the extended weekend, the students were taken to the Historic Site early Monday for a public performance outside of Ebenezer Baptist Church.

Tina Reynolds, director of Gwendolyn Brooks’s performing arts, stated that ” We’re from diverse community near Chicago. We thought it was really important that we took today to come to Martin Luther King Historic Site and reflect on all that we should be grateful for and we thought we’d share all of our gifts and talents.”
