Clark Johnson, a director and star for Homicide and The Wire, made the TV movie Boycott in 2001, bringing Jeffrey Wright and Terrence Howard wide attention for their award-winning performances of, respectively, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Rev. Ralph Abernathy. The film, which won a Peabody for its wrenching portrayal of Rosa Parks, screens Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, as part of the Maryland Humanities Council's tribute to Parks.

Raul Midon and Sonya Kitchell :

His richly melodic approach has been compared to Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway. Her introspective blend of pop and folk, overlaid with a touch of jazz, has drawn comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones. Together on one stage, Midon and Kitchell should make an engaging, intoxicating pair. They perform at 8 p.m. today at Rams Head On Stage, 33 West St. in Annapolis. $25.
