Young people, of all shades. Sharing their differences... As well what makes them the same. Tonight, they share a commitment to diversity and furthering Dr. King's dream of unity and equality.
Miss Monroe Outstanding Teen 2010 Cheyenne Little said, "I think the dream has been partially fulfilled, but we can always do better."
That's why teens for a dream is hosting this event, called "One world, many colors."
Teens for the dream Coordinator Apolonya Williams said, "When we was growing up, I seen so many separations in schools, like the east side was white kids and the south side was black kids."
Teen coordinator Apolonya Williams says she hopes that by learning to appreciate one anothers food, music and cultural differences, young people will unite. Or else, like the volcanoes in Alberto Sandino's homeland of Nicaragua, a lack of diversity and racial issues, might erupt.
Little said, "People are stubborn and selfish and want to associate with people who they think are like them and that's definitely something we need to work at, and that's what Martin Luther King was talking about trying to change in America."
Williams is hoping this event is a step in the right direction.
Williams said, "My ultimate vision is that I really want to see is everyone coming together as one,working to make a better place, a better world, just for us to live."
