60th Anniversary of "I Have a Dream" Speech

Tax deductible

I am Walter Duane Parham, CEO of Educational Arts Society, a 501 c 3 nonprofit.

In commemoration of the “I Have a Dream Speech” delivered by Civil Rights Leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, a CD entitled “Martin’s Dream” has been recorded and an accompanying video is in the process of being made. It will be sixty (60) years on August 2023 since that historic March on Washington Speech was made. However, Detroiters know the foundation of that speech was made on June 1963 with the Walk to Freedom in Detroit. That knowledge makes this commemoration special to Michiganders!

Therefore, we are raising funds to produce and record "Martin's Dream," a poem and song written by Duane Parham. The GREAT thing about the project is CEO Parham is licensed to include 37 seconds of the "I Have a Dream" speech in both the song and poem. But...we need your help to celebrate the legacy of this great man! Please help us reach our goal!

CEO Walter Duane Parham - Thank you: No donation is too large or too small.

As we move forward in celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" Speech, a poem and song, written years ago by yours truly, captures the "dream" and the continual progress that must be made to make the dream a reality.

Please view the video. Hopefully, you will see the need to help us record the poem and song into a video. What makes this venture special is, not only am I licensed to record the poem and song by the estate of Dr. King but can use 37 seconds of the "I Have a Dream" Speech while doing it Please help us do that! The legacy of Dr. King serves all people.
