Highlights & Things to Do:

Monday, Jan. 19: “Let Freedom Ring” a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall with Natalie Cole, Let Freedom Ring Choir directed by Rev. Nolan Williams Jr. Arrive by 5 p.m. to line up for FREE tickets to 6 p.m. concert

Tuesday, Jan. 20, 6 p.m: Kennedy Center Millennium Stage: Javier Starks showcases socially conscious hip-hop music. Free!

Tis the season for movies made with an eye on the film industry prizes. “Into the Woods” and “Unbroken” definitely look like Oscar bait, as does the November release “The Imitation Game” starring Benedict Cumberbatch of the TV series “Sherlock.” It is about British mathematician Alan Turing, his assignment to crack Germany’s Enigma Code during World War Two, and how England treated him post-WWII.
YDC isn't sure if they are intended for the awards circuit, but the remake of “Annie” and sequels “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” and “The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies” look like fun.

Now through April 6, 2015: “Days of Endless Time” at the Hirshhorn Museum, second floor gallery, is an exhibition of 14 “moving art” installations created to ease viewers away from frantic 24/7 demands and distractions into timelessness, perhaps meditation. Themes include escape, solitude, enchantment, and nature. On the National Mall near Seventh Street and Independence Ave., SW, Washington, D.C. Free!
