Cinque Cullar Tapped For 60th Anniversary Montgomery Bus Boycott Celebration
International Worship Leader Cinque Cullar joins local and national celebrities including Hillary Clinton, Reverend Freddy Haynes, Reverend Bernice King and other dignitaries gathering in Montgomery, Alabama for the week long festivities commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Mrs. Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat on December 1, 1955 positioned her as the face of the movement which gained worldwide attention bringing Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to prominence.
Cullar, a graduate of Alabama State University will sing at the ecumenical prayer service held at the historic Dexter Avenue Baptist Church where Dr. King served in his first assignment as pastor. “I am humbled to lend my gifts in the celebration commemorating the birth of the movement”, states Cullar. “I love Montgomery for its historicity and as an educator, I feel the necessity to make sure that we empower young people through the knowledge and appreciation of our history. The sacrifice and commitment of people like Mrs. Rosa Parks, Dr. King and others should never be forgotten. We are able to enjoy many opportunities not afforded to our parents and grandparents because of their hard work and dedication.”
In addition to the prayer service, a gospel concert will be held on Sunday December 6th at the Dunn Carter Acadome on the campus of Alabama State University.
Cullar continues touring supporting the release of his sophomore release Life and Worship Live In Sweden.
