A CELEBRATION OF DR. KING
Monday, January 17
This year, we’re expanding our beloved annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a wide variety of free events for community members of all ages and interests. Choreographer Reggie Wilson offers POWER, a propulsive new dance piece. Live music returns to BAMcafé. A free screening of Attica by Stanley Nelson spotlights the 1971 prison uprising and the urgent need for change. BAMkids offers special activities for young minds. A group exhibition by Black photographers draws inspiration from the late bell hooks. Plus, the 36th Annual Brooklyn Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. features musical performances (Nona Hendryx with Craig Harris & Tailgaters Tales; Sing Harlem), dance, speeches by civic leaders, and a keynote address from Dr. Imani Perry.
All visitors must present proof of vaccination and ID to attend.

“Un Estado de Gracia / A State of Grace” presenta a siete artistas latinxs y sudamericanos con sede en Nueva York que utilizan sus prácticas como un foro para reflexionar sobre las nociones de hogar, comunidad, familia (biológica y elegida), memoria, consumismo y complejidad de la identidad. Los artistas emplean diversos medios y formas estéticas, incluida la fotografía, la escultura, la pintura, el dibujo y el sonido para plantear preguntas sobre el desplazamiento, la migración, la memoria y la resiliencia, una resiliencia que ha sido particularmente desafiada en la era de COVID-19, y el viaje. hacia la equidad social.

An ongoing, annual series, Wave Hill’s Horticultural Lectures are devoted to garden design and the meaning of our interactions with plants and the natural world. The series is curated by Wave Hill and its Friends of Horticulture Committee.
The first two lectures in this year’s series take place virtually on Zoom, once again allowing us to expand the audience far beyond Wave Hill and metropolitan New York City. The March lecture brings us all to Wave Hill for the evening, a chance to hear a dynamic speaker just as the arrival of spring can be felt across the gardens.
