In cooperation with community partnerships throughout Bradley County, Cleveland State Community College will present Dream Weekend 2020 in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from Jan. 18 through Jan. 20, 2020.
The weekend, set to be filled with community events in connection with Dream Weekend 2020, will climax Monday morning with a march through Cleveland. Everyone wishing to take part will be gathering at the Bradley County Courthouse between 8 and 9 a.m.
on Jan. 20. At 9 a.m., the march will travel down Ocoee Street ending in a convocation, complete with a community choir, that will be open to the public.
This will be the first march in memory of Dr. King on MLK Day in the City of Cleveland. Cleveland State also plans for this Dream Weekend to become an annual celebration in honor of the slain civil rights leader.
“We are so excited and proud to help celebrate Dr. King’s legacy in such a profound way right here in Cleveland,” said Willie Thomas, Cleveland State Community College’s Assistant to the President on Equity and Inclusion. “This is something that we are honored to be able to bring to the people of Cleveland and Bradley County. We simply want everyone to save the dates of Dream Weekend 2020 and hopefully be ready to take part.”
