Pompano Beach celebration that celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with an inter-faith prayer breakfast, 3 on 3 basketball challenge, parade and celebration.
Sun, 1/18, 6pm | The Bridge, Allan Harris, Doug Wimbish & Jesse Jones, Jr. | SPECIAL EVENT—-FREE EVENT… at the E. Pat Larkins Community Center | 520 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Pompano Beach, FL
Allan Harris returns for a special performance of The Bridge, a musical reminder of those, who 50 years ago, fought for the Civil Rights that today are so often taken for granted. Allan, renowned for his guitar and vocals, is joined by legendary rock ‘n’ roll bassist Doug Wimbish, Jesse Jones, Jr. on alto saxophone and Christian Howes on violin. Together they have created a show to entertain, educate, and inspire a new generation to “wake up” and recognize that their so-called unalienable rights are under serious attack.
This intriguing performance came about after Harris and Wimbish first played together at Art Deco Weekend 2014 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend) in Miami Beach. They decided to organize a live show commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s voting rights march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama on March 7, 1965, an event since known as “Bloody Sunday.”
