Each year Footsteps of Peace pays tribute to a world humanitarian. This April we will honor the first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Justice Marshall was a civil rights activist and was instrumental in ending legal segregation.

 

“We make movies about Malcolm X, we get a holiday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, but everyday we live with the legacy of Justice Thurgood Marshall”

– The Washington Afro American newspaper, 1993

 

Follow the footsteps to the most inspiring musical event of the year!

The change starts with you!

 

The Klein is also conducting an essay contest for Middle School and High School students. Each submissions recieves 2 complimentary tickets to the show. The subject: What does freedom really mean to you, and how can we get there as a country, as a society?
