Music played a huge role in the Civil Rights movement, and musicians often stood alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. while he made many of his speeches.

On Monday, the Rock Hall celebrates King’s legacy with special programming that includes educational programs and musical performances.

The Distinguished Gentlemen of Spoken Word will perform along with Tam Tam Magic, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting health and wellness through the use of innovative cultural arts and educational programs. Digital Arts High School Steppers will be on hand, and Cleveland Play House will offer a preview of Marie and Rosetta!, a play about Sister Rosetta Thorpe.

There will also be classes and film screenings in Foster Theatre.

Visitors can make their own protest signs in the Voinovich Atrium from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Rock Hall will also accept new hats, coats, gloves and scarves to benefit the Providence House. Make your donation when you visit.

The Rock Hall opens at 10 a.m., and admission is free.
