Kimberly Brown to Present Concert, Breakfast Program During MLK Events at Southwest Minnesota State University 

Marshall, Minn. — “Celebrating the Unsung Heroines of the Civil Rights Movement” is the theme for events surrounding Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2022 at Southwest Minnesota State University.

Kimberly Brown, a former member of the three-time Grammy Award-winning group Sounds of Blackness, will play a key role in the MLK celebration events, set for Sunday, Jan. 16 and Monday, Jan. 17.

Brown will give a concert at 7 p.m. on Jan. 16 at the Schwan Community Center for the Performing Arts at Marshall High School. The concert is free and open to the public.

She will follow that up by presenting the keynote address at the MLK  Breakfast on Jan. 17 from 7:30-9:30 a.m. in the Conference Center Ballroom on campus. Brown will weave  together the music of the era with stories of women’s influence, to match the breakfast’s theme of “Women of the Movement.”
