In celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a dramatic one-man show about the life and times of the late civil rights leader will be presented on Monday, January 15, in the Barben Rooms of Clarkson University’s Cheel Campus Center.lucas

The evening begins with a buffet dinner at 5:30 p.m., followed by a 7:30 p.m. performance of “Reflections,” with Jim Lucas in the role of Dr. King.

In “Reflections,” Lucas uses his uncanny resemblance to Dr. King to bring to life his most famous speeches, including “I Have a Dream,” “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” and “A Knock At Midnight,” as well as excerpts from “Letter From Birmingham Jail.”

Lucas has performed before President Clinton and has been a guest speaker at the NAACP and National Baptist Conventions. He has also received accolades for his performance in the critically acclaimed play, The Meeting, a drama about a fictional encounter between Dr. King and Malcolm X.

Tickets are available at the Cheel Campus Center information desk for $5, which covers the buffet dinner and the show. The public is welcome to attend.

For more information, contact Randy Lamson, director of Campus Center activities, at 315-268-6680.
