Prayers of the People

Marking the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Prayers of the People is a secular liturgical performance of Dr. King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” This participatory performance, directed by Bill T. Jones, takes the structure of an Episcopal liturgy to bring to life his words, written from jail in response to a joint letter from eight religious leaders urging him to stop disrupting the peace.

Presented with the Hannah Arendt Center and New York Live Arts, as part of the Arendt Center’s annual conference, Citizenship and Civil Disobedience.
