Martin Luther King Celebration "Beyond the Dream"
For Piedmont’s 22nd annual MLK Day Celebration, we honor King’s anti-poverty legacy. King believed that any struggle for justice must eliminate poverty. “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny,” he wrote. “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
The program will feature inspiring performances by Oakland Youth Laureate, Leila Mottley the Black Sheroes of Young Gifted and Black; Oakland Jazz Workshops; Together We Slam of Piedmont High and speeches by the Hon. Barbara Lee, Congresswoman, 13th District, Hon. Buffy Wicks, Congresswomen, 15th District, and Piedmont Mayor, Robert McBain.
