McKenzie turns on MLK talent for fundraiser



ST. PETERSBURG-- The Rev. Charles McKenzie, who is challenging state Rep. Darryl Rouson for his District 55 seat, will perform in a one-man show depicting 12 scenes from the life of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Saturday.

McKenzie, known for his dead-on impersonations of King, says the show is intended as a thank you to friends and supporters. A $20 donation is requested. Proceeds will benefit the McKenzie campaign.

The show, titled "Keeping the Dream Alive: The Civil Rights Movement through the Eyes and Words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr," will be held at the Enoch Davis Center in St. Petersburg at 7 p.m. 

Advance tickets are required.  Call 727-743-1674 or 727-866-7335 to reserve a ticket.  Campaign contributions will not be collected the night of the show.
