The celebration seeks to bridge the gap between people and ideas through a community curated summit. Over 1,000 events will help bring people of all backgrounds together.
One of the highly recognized events is the DreamHour Migrant Series—where individuals share their unique perspectives on the “there & here” duality of their experiences.
Their stories begin in 21 different locations around the globe and end in San Antonio. These men and women will speak at the Tobin Center between January 13 and 23.
The annual San Antonio MLK March is also an important event that lands on January 20 during DreamWeek. A member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. spoke to our Annette Garcia during their preperation.
“We have young people who have never been exposed to Martin Luther King or exposed to what was happening in the '60s as African Americans were trying to earn their rights,” said Marilyn Stanton-White. “And DreamWeek helps us keep his dream alive and let those children and young adults know what had to happen to be where they are today.”
In addition to the migrant series and the MLK March, events will range from fashion exhibits, to film showings, music, food and more.
