Cleveland State’s “I Have a Dream” MLK Weekend

We were joined by Willie Thomas from Cleveland State to talk bout the upcoming MLK march in downtown Cleveland at United Methodist Memorial. You can watch the service live Sunday at 4 and the march on Monday. We will post the link on our Facebook page.

Cleveland State Community College invites the public to join the third annual “I Have a Dream” Weekend in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The weekend of activities was created to honor Dr. King and his efforts of equality within our nation. We are encouraging the community to come together and give back to others in the spirit of Dr. King.

“While we are proud to engage the community in this annual event it is our greatest hope that it will inspire a greater sense of understanding, peace and racial justice throughout the year,” stated Dr. Bill Seymour, CSCC President. “I could not be happier that the “City with Spirit” has embraced this opportunity to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and extend his dream to this community.”

On Sunday, January 16, donations will be collected at Broad Street United Methodist Church at 4 PM. Gloves, hats, and canned goods will be collected there to give to The Caring Place. On Monday, January 17, all participants will meet at the Bradley County Courthouse at 9 AM to march downtown.

The community is encouraged to join the Community Choir in singing songs in celebration on Sunday, January 16 at the Broad Street United Methodist Church. If you would like to participate, please join the choir rehearsal on Saturday, January 15 at the church from 2 PM to 3:30 PM. All ages are welcomed.
