Composer Joseph Schwantner’s “New Morning for the World” is bold and buoyant and as eloquent as the words it honors from selected texts by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This Friday, Boston Conservatory Orchestra's Black History Month concert at Symphony Hall will include Schwantner's composition. And attorney, author, civil rights activist and Brandeis University professor of law Anita Hill will be making her orchestral debut as she narrates Dr. King’s words. Today on The Culture Show, Hill joins host Jared Bowen to talk about the power of Martin Luther King Jr.’s writing and how — despite our ever turbulent times — his message can still help to keep hope alive.

Then, a public service arts announcement courtesy of the Pao Arts Center, where the Lunar New Year festivities continue. This Sunday, there will be a convergence of activities at the Chinatown cultural center, from dance to drawing to puppet-making, not to mention other other celebrations along the way. Joining The Culture Show for a preview is Cynthia Woo, director of the Pao Arts Center.

Finally, it’s time for "AI: Actual Intelligence," where we tap into the most interesting thinkers in our area. Boston-based independent curator and The Culture Show contributor Pedro Alonzo joins the show for a conversation about how Mexico has become one of the world’s top art destinations.

It's all on The Culture Show—listen to the full episode above!
