This year's theme is adapted from the following quote from Bernice King, daughter of Dr. King and CEO of the King Center, who was commenting on the significance of the 50 year anniversary of the speech: "It is our intention to make the 50th anniversary observance an inspiring, global and educational celebration, which renews my father's challenge to create a nonviolent society in which justice, shared prosperity, brotherhood and sisterhood can flourish in America and throughout the world."
~Winners & selected submissions will be displayed in front windows of Main Street businesses the week before and on the day of the event. Performances will take place at the event.
