Weaving together poetry, hip-hop and history, The MLK Project: The Fight for Civil Rights follows Alaya, a student in search of truth and self-discovery through researching the American Civil Rights Movement. Seen by more than 70,000 students, this cross-cultural, dynamic, multimedia performance interlaces personal interviews of Chicago-based Civil Rights activists, featuring both the celebrated and unsung heroes of the Movement.
