The Dream at 50

About The Dream@50

THE DREAM@50 is a tribute series to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, including The Dream@50 Art Contest, a student art contest (K-12), Dance the Dream, a world music/dance celebration, and a feature documentary. The mission of THE DREAM@50 is to reify Dr. King's dream of a fully integrated, fully empowered, world (the Beloved Community) through the arts.

THE DREAM@50 is produced by Karz Productions in partnership with the United Nations (Academic Impact), UNESCO, YouTube, International Theatre Institute, Global Arts Link, Americans for the Arts, Dance/USA, National Dance Education Organization, National Education Association, National Art Education Association, National Council of Teachers of English, National Council for the Social Studies, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Arts Schools Network, Dance Camera West, and Dance Films Association. THE DREAM@50 is a sponsored project of Artspire, a program of the New York Foundation for the Arts.

Executive Producer

THE DREAM@50 is produced by Richard Karz, who created the critically acclaimed documentary feature, Legacy: Black and White in America, the third film in The Millennium Dinners documentary series. Legacy was first broadcast on PBS in 2008 (sponsored by Wal-Mart and AARP) and was expanded and updated for theatrical release in April 2009, with special screening/discussions at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. (sponsored by the National Archives Foundation), Harvard University in Cambridge (sponsored by the Kennedy School of Government and the Harvard Foundation), the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the Apollo Theater in New York, presented by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and the National Council of Negro Women. The film examines the political rise of Barack Obama against the backdrop of African-American history and culture. It presents two parallel stories, the story of African-American life today and the story of the Civil Rights generation, to clarify the successes and failures of racial integration in America and what they reveal about our democracy and national character. www.legacyandlessons.com/essay.html.
