BET is planning a mutli-platform presentation of Sunday’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial dedication in Washington, D.C. starting at 11 AM ET.
The original memorial dedication was scheduled for August, but was canceled due to Hurricane Irene. This Sunday, BET, Centric and BET.com will have special programming, including an uninterrupted simulcast of the ceremony. The dedication will feature a performance by the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, and a special speech by President Barack Obama.
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.”
Sunday is going to be jam-packed with lots of TV goodies.
Tune in this Sunday!
