Martin Luther King: More than a day

A woman celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day

After New Year’s, the first federal holiday of 2018 honors civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. If you don’t have January 15 off from work, Pittsburgh has a weekend of celebrations to enjoy.

One highlight: the 11th annual Let Freedom Sing, featuring the Heritage Gospel Chorale of Pittsburgh, area choirs and emcee Lynne Hayes-Freeland of KDKA-TV. Two performances will celebrate the legacy of Dr. King: Saturday, January 13, 7 p.m. at Ebenezer Baptist Church and Monday, January 15, 7 p.m. at the Byham.

The concerts benefit Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Tickets start at $1.
