Wonderful music will once again fill Bethany Baptist Church this Sunday, as the Church's Lecture Committee presents "Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." Vocalist and songwriter Cassandra Wilson will be the special musical guest at Sunday's program, which begins at 2:30 p.m.

Three of the people involved in the program sat down this week with WBGO News Director Doug Doyle to talk about the event.
