In Remembering the Dream we share songs and stories of the Civil Rights Movement from the 1950’s and 60’s. There is a clear connection to the Dream Dr. King shared in August of 1963, in the chronological and spiritual middle of that movement.
These days we continue to be together in our isolation and separation. Among things we share are our individual stories of how social distancing and social isolation are impacting our lives in different yet often similar ways.
There have never been times like these in my lifetime. There is a song I wrote while waiting to hear the news of a friend’s condition. It was sort of a writing meditation that took the form of this song.
We now have a video of Remembering the Dream. The plan is to begin sharing it next month. The process of creating the video was, well, amazing. Beginning the middle of February we shared dinner and the Dream with a small group at some friends’ home.
For the last few months I have been working on a project entitled Remember the Dream. It combines songs and stories of the Civil Rights Movement along with personal thoughts and experiences. I believe the Civil Rights Movement is an example of America at its best.
