The fund-raiser, which begins at 8:30 a.m., features a full breakfast and presentations from the 2013 Beautillion Class and leaders of the Young Men of Excellence Program in addition to the viewing of the award-winning film.
The film takes viewers inside the last hours of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
King was shot to death on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn.
The Rev. Samuel “Billy” Kyles, who was at King’s side on the balcony, bore witness to his assassination. The 2008 film captures Kyles’ recollections of those fateful moments and the days leading up to them.
The fund-raiser will culminate with a panel discussion.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.
