This excellent documentary is being repeated on Wednesday 6 November. If you missed the previous broadcast, do your best to see it this time round. Some great insights into the Black Civil Rights movement and its leaders, and the story behind Dr King’s historic ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. Well worth the effort to see it.
Two pairs of tickets up for grabs for Denys Baptiste’s acclaimed NOW IS THE TIME…LET FREEDOM RING! this Saturday, 26 October, 7.30pm at Southbank Centre if you can answer this question by 10pm TONIGHT!

Another review just in of Now Is The Time…Let Freedom Ring!, this time from Rhythmaning who saw the concert at Usher Hall in bonny Edinburgh. Clearly, this show is having a real impact on audiences ‘Ambitious…heart-rending…spine-tingling…exquisite…moving…powerful stuff indeed’. This is a MUST-SEE show!!
