This retrospective program draws from World Arts Foundation's organizational legacy hosting a community event honoring Dr. King's work. Their events have connected local performing artists and community leaders to underserved communities of color since 1978. This year's program film features performing artists, activists, public officials, businesses, choirs, and youth who have participated in this event over the years. Through a combination of archival footage and contemporary interviews, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" draws inspiration from Dr. King's mission to ensure peace, social justice, civil rights and human dignity for all.
