In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Motus Theater and Colorado ACLU present a special virtual live streamed performance in which Deborah Richardson, Executive Director of Colorado ACLU, and Velveta Golightly-Howell, member of the ACLU Colorado Board of Directors, will stand with two community leaders who were formerly incarcerated, from Motus Theater’s JustUs project, and read aloud their stories. Musical response from acclaimed singer/songwriter Carlos Heredia, who is premiering a new song in honor of the JustUs monologues. The reading will be followed by a discussion on the racism and violence within the criminal legal system in light of Dr. King Jr.’s civil rights legacy. Free, family-friendly event (middle school age and up).
