The Dream Endures: a conversation at MetroHealth
If you saw Dr. Akram Boutros’ letter to the community earlier this year, you know MetroHealth is partnering with Cuyahoga Community College to create a year of programs focused on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Based on Dr. King’s commitment to improving the economic condition of millions of Americans, we’ll be starting conversations, encouraging discussions and sharing stories all year. The first event in that series is The Dream Endures, a conversation between Leon Bibb and the Rev. Dr. Otis Moss Jr.
The event is free and open to the public. Join us Tuesday, June 19, at 4 p.m. in Scott Auditorium at MetroHealth’s main campus, 2500 MetroHealth Drive, Cleveland, Ohio.
Leon is nationally known for forging the way for African American journalists in print and broadcasting. Rev. Moss, the pastor emeritus of Olivet Institutional Baptist Church, is a lifelong civil rights activist who knew and worked with Dr. King.
The two will discuss Dr. King’s memory and legacy 50 years after his death, and what still needs to be done to fully achieve his famous dream.
Registration is free, but required. RSVP by June 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
