About the Holiday

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal'...I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character...I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood."

The 3rd of three annual Emancipation Days of Respect, Dream Day Quest and Jubilee honors the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by promoting unity, respect and remembrance. On this the anniversary of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream Speech” on Aug. 28, 1963, you are requested to wear black and white as a sign of respect for peoplehood. His speech was given in Washington, D.C. at the Lincoln Memorial.
