PHOTOS: Let Freedom Ring Celebration at the Kennedy Center

Georgetown University's annual MLK event is a collaboration with the Kennedy Center.

Smokey Robinson and the Let Freedom Ring choir performed at the the annual Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, a collaboration between Georgetown University and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Mary Brown, the co-founder and executive director of Life Pieces to Masterpieces,  is this year's recipient of the annual John Thompson Jr. “Legacy of a Dream” Award, given to an individual or organization that reflects the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. "life and spirit."

Brown's nonprofit supports young African American boys in DC's Wards 7 and 8.

This was an absolutely wonderful event in celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday, and coming the day before President Obama's inauguration, made it even more special. Many, many thanks to the Kennedy Center and Georgetown University for sponsoring this event, which was free to the public.

Oh, and I should add, Smokey was smokin, as was the choir. A definite bright spot in mid-January!
