The Dream Continues…

On behalf of the MLK Dream Weekend staff, we are grateful for the support and enthusiasm with which the upstate community of SC has embraced the efforts of MLK Dream Weekend over the past 4 1/2 years! Since the inception of this project in 2005 and the first celebration in 2006 to the present, MLK Dream Weekend events have hosted literally thousands of individuals including youth, along with many groups, non-profit organizations, businesses, elected officials, and churches. We have participated in events that have successfully brought together various ethnicities, backgrounds and cultural expressions to celebrate the progress of our community, as well as inspiring dreams.

As we approach the 5th Annual MLK Dream Weekend in January 2010, the vision for this event continues to be that of reflecting the best of our community by intentionally creating synergistic, mutually beneficial relationships between businesses, organizations and individuals. Our desire is to implement events and activities that inspire dreams, ignite individual potential, as well as provide clear strategies for turning dreams into reality. We are excited to share with you examples of success stories from previous MLK Dream Weekend efforts.

Our goal is that 2010’s events will expand our capacity to inspire and implement plans that will change lives and improve the quality of life for our community and its citizens. Keep checking back with this website as well as our Facebook page to learn of the activities and opportunities we have in store for the remainder of this year as we lead into our 5th celebration January 15, 2010.

Keep Dreaming!!

Pastor Curtis Johnson, Founder of MLK Dream Weekend
