The livestream will take place on the 57th anniversary of the speech
WOODBURY, NY, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Creative producer and entrepreneur Steve Distante (ImpactU.Film) collaborates with premiere MLK performer Stephon Ferguson to present I HAVE A DREAM – a livestreamed reenactment of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s infamous speech on Friday, August 28 at 2:30pm ET. RSVP and details on the event can be found here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-march-tickets-116627952345
On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. took the podium on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. to address the nation. One of the most influential speeches of all time, “I Have A Dream” was seen as a catalytic moment of change in the Civil Rights Movement. As we celebrate the 57th anniversary of the speech and the March on Washington, the message of equality for all still resonates as our nation reels from months of civil unrest in the wake of increasing social justice issues.
“Stephon Ferguson has the ability to transform himself into Dr. King and transport us back to the times of the Civil Rights Movement. His performance allows us to relive this historic moment viscerally and better understand how the context of Dr. King’s words are still incredibly relevant today. My commitment is to bring impactful film, media and storytelling to help bring awareness and solutions to the inequalities our world is facing.” Steve Distante, Creative Producer of the project, Filmmaker and Entrepreneur.
I HAVE A DREAM will recreate this historic 17-minute speech with acclaimed performer Stephon Ferguson as Dr. King. The livestream will begin at 2:30pm ET with an interview between ImpactU.Film’s Steve Distante and Mr. Ferguson to give context to the backstory of the speech and its lasting legacy today. At 3:00pm ET, the time Dr. King gave the speech in 1963, Mr. Ferguson will reenact the “I Have A Dream” speech including physical movements, tone, breath and intention.
This presentation of I HAVE A DREAM is sponsored by ImpactU.Film and Vanderbilt Financial Group as part of Vanderbilt’s year-long commitment to Sustainable Development Goal 10 – Reduced Inequalities.
