On Saturday, January 18, Restoration Dance Theatre and Restoration Youth Arts Academy in Bedford-Stuyvesant presented “Deeply Rooted,” an annual commemoration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela at Long Island University’s Kumble Theater.
Choreographers included Karen Thornton-Daniels, Maleek Joseph, Germaul Barnes, Lindia Dugue, Nathan Trice, Shawn Hawkins, Ronald K. Brown, Michelle J. Smith, Ade Chike, Christopher “Sweat” White and Keisha James.
