Start the Year with a revitalized Dream in 2017… 

On January 14, 2017, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream of Hope, Unity and Change for people of all races will be celebrated by the unifying sounds of praise! Bring Hope alive, together with the CAA Jazz Ensemble, The Tullochs, LaToya Mullings, the CHYE Litaneers, Michelle Adams, the Children and Youth Dance Theatre and others will all be performing, especially through the channel of Education. The celebration in honor of Dr. King will also feature some of Toronto’s top musicians

The event promises to be inspirational and motivational and will take place on Saturday, January 14th, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.  Up to two thousand people are expected to attend the 18th Annual Celebration at the McVety Conference Centre located at 50 Gervais Drive in Toronto (Eglinton Avenue and Don Mills Road area).  Admission is $10 in advance, $20 at the door; and Free for children 10 years and under.

The Keynote Speaker is Dr. Leslie Pollard, President of Oakwood University.

Representatives from the media and municipal government along with community dignitaries will be in attendance.

Pauline Christian, the Executive Producer of the 18 year old event shared her confidence and hope in the realization of Dr. King’s dream in the life of our youth.  “We need to instill in our youth that the dream they possess is the seed of their greatness and we (parents, educators, government, friends, mentors, clergy, etc.) need to help them provide fertile conditions to make the Dream flourish,” said Christian.  “We need to cultivate a spirit of greatness within them allowing them to realize their dream and give back to the community.”
