For the 19th year, Youth Speaks celebrates the continuing life and legacy of Dr. King with a powerful evening where young poets breathe new life into his words. Beyond homage, these young poets and leaders are continuing the work the icon left behind with renewed commitment, imagination and love. The urgency of Dr. King's work resonates deeply with the current state of our world. It is fitting then that we gather an audience to witness the next generation bravely share their stories as they respond, reinterpret and renew the compelling and inspired testimony of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the holiday in his name.
This year's showcase will feature performances by the co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter Alicia Garza, members of the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars, organist and vocalist Tammy Hall, and an incredible line up of young poets from Youth Speaks.
$5 Youth, $10 Adults.
