King: A Reflection on the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The spoken word piece “King: A Reflection on the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” a mixture of poetry and brief reflections, remembers Reverend King as an individual with human limitations who nevertheless answered the call to leadership. The work is divided into four sections, “Nobel-man,” “Chicago,” “Bottles and Rocks,” and “Memphis 1968.” In 2015 a performance of King was held at the Gerald R. Ford Museum and underwritten by Foundation Trustees Hank Meijer and Liesel Meijer.
