Actors Studio, Y join forces for MLK event

The YWCA Greater Newburyport is teaming up with The Actors Studio of Newburyport for its 21st annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.

High school students from the Y’s Racial Justice Committee have been working with storyteller Valerie Tutson to create an evening of stories and activities during this year’s event, which is a dinner instead of the traditional breakfast.

The performances are designed to break down barriers and move toward compassionate understanding of other races and cultures. The evening will also feature the presentation of the Nancy E. Peace Action Against Prejudice Award to the Rev. Oliver Jones, assistant rector at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

The dinner will be held Monday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Newburyport City Hall. Tickets are available at the Y’s front desk. For more information, call 978-225-6210 or email edavis@ywcanewburyport.org.
