From the archives, MLK Jr. Special Programming 2009 and 2021. Visit wandaspicks.com for 2022 Dr. King events. 1. We begin this morning in conversation with Charles Curtis Blackwell, poet, playwright, artivist, subject of film: "God Given Talent" and Rev. Clarence Johnson, a veteran of the Civil Rights Movement, join us to talk about the legacy of Dr. MLK Jr. who would have been 92 in 2021. 2. We speak to Marcus Shelby, who is participated in the MLK Music Tribute in 2009. He premiered an excerpt of a new work honoring Martin King. Ms. Faye Carol, featured in Marcus' new work, joined the musician/composer in the studio and then stayed on when Melanie DeMore joined us. We had a fun conversation, so much so, I could barely get a word in to welcome Clifford Brown Jr., into the studio. The three then had a great time conversing until Ms. Carol had to sign off. Okay, I am trying to let out my breath...whew! 3. Miko Marks and Kev Choice came into the studio after this segment, to talk about their work, Miko as a country western singer, and Kev as a rap artist whose work seeks to uplift the community, his listeners. They both performed, Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2009, 8 PM, at the Oaktown Jazz Workshop fundraiser at Yoshi's in Jack London Square in Oakland. 4. We close with a conversation with Hodari B. Davis and Mike Turner. Mike is a student at Encinal High School, and Hodari is director of National Initiatives for Youth Speaks.
