Beginning in 2014, the Foundation has presented Martin Luther King Day programs featuring some of Central Ohio’s finest jazz musicians and singers. The programs present freedom music as interpreted by this aggregation. Each year’s program is topical and reflects current events in the civil rights arena. Admission is free so anyone can attend, no matter their income. Donations are requested with proceeds benefitting civil rights organizations. Past beneficiaries include the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
