*If you can’t make it to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial dedication, catch it on BET for the multi-platform presentation of the event.
Originally scheduled for August, the dedication was moved due to the unusual Hurricane Irene. But this Sunday, nothing’s expected to stop the monumental occasion.
The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, is expected to usher in the celebration with her soulful sounds and heartfelt Gospel music.
Also to be in attendance is President Barack Obama, who will give a special speech as America makes history once again.
BET will also re-air “Michelle Obama on a Mission: Impact Africa” and “Alpha Man: The Brotherhood of M.L.K.” in addition to broadcasting the premiere episode of “Bobby Jones Gospel.”
