Martin Luther King Re-Enactor Will Present "We're Moving On" At Pitt-Bradford


BRADFORD, Pa. – Award-winning actor and director Dr. C. Anthony Jackson will use music, poetry, storytelling and re-enactments to chronicle Martin Luther King Jr.’s life Friday, Jan. 21, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

He will present “We’re Moving On” at 7:30 p.m. in Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall. Cost is $10 for the public and free for students, faculty and staff. A question-and-answer session will follow the program.

Jackson will bring to light King’s softer side, including his humor, frailties, fear and anger. Many only know King as a great American civil rights leader, minister and orator who played a large role in weaving African Americans into society.

“What I like particularly about this production is his commitment to show seldom-seen aspects of Dr. King,” said Randy Mayes, director of arts programming at Pitt-Bradford. “Dr. King had moments of doubt, pent-up anger and human frailties. Perhaps his moments of weakness underscore how much more impressive it was that he was able to rally past his failings and still achieve the remarkable things he did.”

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette hailed Jackson’s show as a “moving portrayal of Dr. King ...and his voice is hauntingly authentic.”

Jackson is a former professor and member of the performance faculty in the department of drama at the University of Michigan. For eight years, he headed the Black Theater Studies Program.

He has appeared on television and movies, such as the “Walker: Texas Ranger” TV series. He has also been part of regional theater companies in Houston, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Virginia.

Jackson toured internationally with the award-winning production “Diary of Black Men.” He is the founder and managing director of Artists Unlimited Inc.

Jackson received a bachelor of fine arts degree from Carnegie-Mellon University, a master’s degree from the University of Michigan, and a doctoral degree at Wayne State University in Detroit.

He lives in Houston.
