SOUL POWER: Bassist Marcus Shelby performs a free tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. online Monday.

This Saturday, Community School of Art and Music honor MLK’s birthday with a free online event: Bay Area jazz bassist Marcus Shelby performing selections from his 2011 album Soul of the Movement: Meditations on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The album interweaves originals like “Memphis (I Am a Man)” with spirituals like “There is a Balm in Gilead” and compositions like Charles Mingus’s “Fables of Faubus,” about Governor Faubus’s attempt to keep Little Rock Central High School segregated in 1957. In between selections, Shelby speaks about the importance of music in civil rights movements.
