The Bardavon is thrilled to welcome actor and musician Guy Davis who will deliver the narration for New Morning for the World w/ the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Guy Davis is the son of famed actors Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee and a direct link to Martin Luther King, Jr, who was a close friend of his parents and with whom he attended protest marchers as a young man in the 1960s.
In addition New Morning for the World will also present the New York premiere of dramatic film projections designed and created by Peabody Award winning Broadcaster, Producer & Director Elliott Forrest. The visual component premiered in 2019 and marries a fascinating mix of documentary and archival footage, much of it never before seen, along with iconic images, contemporary portraits, and abstract overlays.
