Memphis residents will join together in the spirit of reflection and service for the city's first-ever "Be the Dream" MLK Weekend, a series of events to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"His message was broader than one for minorities alone," Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr. says. "He belonged to all of us, and for this weekend we will celebrate this universal, enduring legacy."
Be the Dream festivities will kick off Saturday (Jan. 18th), with a youth symposium at the Cook Convention Center. The event will offer resources to help guide youth ages 15-19 in their search for summer employment and post-secondary educational opportunities.
