RISE UP! A Storytelling Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

For those of you who missed "RISE UP! A Storytelling Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr." on Monday, the show was amazing and we wanted to give you the opportunity to view the recording.

This special event featured award-winning, nationally recognized musicians and storytellers.

The proceeds from this event benefitted The Ally League Fund in Seattle, whose mission is to combat racism by helping allies move from empathy to action. The Ally League amplifies Black-owned businesses by introducing quality products from Black entrepreneurs to allies and providing technical support to their affiliated companies.
