From The Citizen: Community celebrates diversity and creativity at Auburn Public Theater

AUBURN — There was a full house Monday night at Auburn Public Theater as dozens of people came out to celebrate the community’s diversity and creativity while honoring one of the most memorable persons in American history.

For the second year in a row, Celebrate! Diverse Auburn — a relatively new subcommittee of the Harriet Tubman Center for Justice & Peace — hosted MLK Day Open Jam Night at APT in an effort to remember Martin Luther King, Jr.

The event was modeled after APT’s weekly open mic night series in which the general public can come to the Exchange Street theater to listen and express themselves with the spoken word, comedy, music and performance art.
