      Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration

      To honor the life and work of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Chapel will host a public program featuring a short address by civil rights activist and organizer Rev. Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr., and former Indian ambassador Nirupama Rao. The program will be held at 7 p.m. on Dr. King’s birthday, Tuesday, January 15, 2019. Following the address, award-winning journalist and Channel 13 reporter Melanie Lawson will moderate a conversation exploring the influence of Mahatma Gandhi on Dr. King, especially the importance of non-violence in social change movements. Texas-based musicians Indrajit Banerjee on sitar and Shantilal Shal on tabla will perform from 6:30-7 p.m. before the program begins, and the Phillip Hall Singers will perform Gospel music as the program comes to a close. This program is a pay-what-you-can event with a suggested donation of $20 and includes a reception on the plaza after the program. The Rothko Chapel is located at 3900 Yupon, Houston, 77006.
