In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. gave his iconic speech, “I Have a Dream”, at the March for Jobs and Freedom.  He called for an end to racism, and demanded civil and economic rights for all. Almost sixty years later; our city of Madison, Wisconsin, is mired in controversial segregationist practices, economic inequalities, an underrepresented working class, and an archaic governing body of the people, but not for the people.

The 2020 Presidential, and other elections, have made the State of Wisconsin (and the City of Madison) the focal point of our nation’s future.  It is time we listen to the voices of tomorrow’s leadership, and those who bring vibrancy and a true culture of community to our city.  It is time for a Fresh Vision.

We invite all to come and celebrate the voices and visions of tomorrow’s leaders, creators, and innovators.  We are featuring several youth performers, artists, and speakers; giving them a space and a community to share their take on MLK Jr’s. Dream.

Like MLK Jr., there are those who have helped paved the way for these leaders of tomorrow, and continue their efforts in our city to bring about civil and economic change.  Join us as we hear from those who continue to lead in the areas of education, human rights, environmental issues, workers’ rights, and economic equality.

No celebration would be complete without music, and Madison has a lot to offer. The evening music line-up beginning at 6 pm; is an eclectic one, with performers from a myriad of our local communities.
