Ensemble members from Dallas Black Dance Theatre II perform at the City of Irving Martin Luther King Jr. Observance on Sun., Jan. 19. This year’s motif revolved around Dr. King’s ministry, and the City conferred its 2014 Civil Rights Legacy Award on the National Park Service for “Preserving the life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. .” Since Dr. King’s assassination in 1968, the Park Service has established and curated a number of memorials commemorating the civil rights leader including constructing a statue in Washington, D.C., as well as managing his birthplace and the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. King preached, in Atlanta.
