The Washington Wizards will celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 17, when they take on the Philadelphia 76ers at 2:00 p.m. at Capital One Arena.
Brandon Camphor & One Way will sing the national anthem and perform their original song “Hope Is Alive” during a timeout. A spoken word video about MLK Day and player video segments reflecting on the significance of Dr. King’s legacy will be played. All arena staff and Wizards’ personnel will also wear a special MLK button.
In celebration of Dr. King, the Wizards will display a “MLK in Color” photo gallery of Dr. King’s life on the concourse. The team will also hang a poster in section 117 of the concourse where fans can write about what MLK Day means to them. Following the game, the poster will be donated to a local community group.
