The Martin Luther King Jr Read-in
Why Black People Tend to Shout: a Dr. King Read-in
- On Sunday, January 14 after coffee hour (around 11:45am in the Parish House), there will be a FREE multi-generational community "read-in" to celebrate and illuminate the social justice ministry of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as the poetry and prose of African American writers, rappers, lyricists, and spoken word artists. So bring your favorite three minutes of poetry, spoken word, essay, song/rap lyrics, biography, historical writing, or fiction written by/about an African American to share with the community. Don't know what to bring? Bring a dish to share! And there will be plenty of excerpts from Dr. King's speeches and other notable writings, curated by our Director of Christian Formation, which will be ready for a willing reader to share. The Congregational Church of Naugatuck is located at 9 Division Street, Naugatuck, CT 06770 and the website is www.congonaug.org.
