Dr. RAS Mikey Courtney visits Moravian Academy in Bethlehem, PA for Martin Luther King Jr. Day

"On January 17, 2019, I began a two-day guest artists residency at Moravian Academy in Bethlehem, PA.  I was fortunate enough to give three presentations, two movement workshops and two lectures to their Upper, Middle, and Lowers schools.  This residency coincided with the celebration of MLK day and I was able to exemplify the ‘dream' that Dr. King had, of not being judged by the color of one's skin but by the content of their character.  I was able to illustrate the role that cultural knowledge plays in my life and in my creative works.  The students and staff of Moravian Academy were well attentive to the information I shared about the journey of my “Cultural Career”, and all seemed to appreciate the diversity of my worldly experiences.  I hope that I will return to Moravian to continue to build on the work I have done." - Dr. RAS Mikey Courtney
