Oaklanders Celebrate Martin Luther King Holiday, Legacy

Among Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr holiday celebrations was an event in the low income African American community of West Oakland. Hundreds gathered in a high school auditorium for a celebration called “Make the Dream Real”. The celebration included multicultural music and dance, performances inspired by King’s greatest speeches, and also a call to recognize King’s roots in the African tradition.
