(Jan. 16) Let Freedom Ring!

If you haven't already been, there couldn't be a better day to check out the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in West Potomac Park just south of the National Mall. If you've already spent some time with Lei Yixin's towering sculpture The Kennedy Center has a celebration of Dr. King's life this evening. Let Freedom Ring brings vocal virtuoso Bobby McFerrin and Washington's Let Freedom Ring Choir together for a tribute performance and a recognition of King's former aide and attorney Clarence Jones, who helped draft the "I Have a Dream" speech.
