Posted January 16, 2019

Ailey’s Vernard J. Gilmore performs an excerpt of Hope Boykin’s r-Evolution, Dream. in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

r-Evolution, Dream. was inspired by the speeches and sermons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., which Boykin listened to during a visit to the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, GA. The video also features original music by Eli Jackson with narration by Leslie Odom, Jr.
