Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Remembered During Black History Month
Dream On! is an international creative collaboration that is producing two tribute CDs, dedicated to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The music – created by independent artists – is in alignment with Dr. King’s ideals of peace and justice.
One man whose name always tops the list of influential black leaders is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In fact, many would remove the race reference, calling him one of the most influential American leaders of our time. His words were quoted repeatedly during inaugural events, and the timing of the inauguration — days after his eightieth birthday — was especially poignant.
Dr. King’s role in the civil rights movement earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. But, as was noted in the presentation speech, “it was not because he led a racial minority in their struggle for equality that Martin Luther King achieved fame.” Instead, his “name will endure for the way in which he has waged his struggle,” not only teaching but personifying nonviolent resistance.
To pay tribute to the man, his work, and his peaceful vision, dozens of independent musicians have collaborated to create Dream On! – a compilation of thirty songs that is raising money for charity. The music is available for FREE download from the website (www.thedreamcontinued.org)
This February, regardless of the color of your skin… Dream On! invites you to remember, to be inspired, and to live Dr. King’s dream of peace, justice, and equality. Dream On!
