His speech, documenting his dream of America, still resonates today — and families can celebrate it on the birthday of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. The University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance has created the program “50 Years Later: A New March to the Dream.” In it, faculty and students from all three disciplines will offer readings and performances inspired by King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The combination of dance, theatrical, and musical performances yields an exuberant collage; expect pieces that are thought-provoking, celebratory, and reflective.
