MLK tribute

On Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day, we celebrate an incredible leader and dreamer who dedicated his life to achieving racial equality and ending oppression. A man who strived to raise the public consciousness of racism, to end racial discrimination and segregation in the United States of America. His courage, commitment to justice and legacy continues to inspire and unite movements around the world to this very day.

Here is a tribute to the incomparable Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech that I had the pleasure of shooting recently. It is a beautiful piece that layers the themes of black love, family and togetherness with the backdrop of Dr. Kings amazing speech.

Directed by Wade Patterson and featuring the amazing talents of Simone Posey, Genesis White and yours truly.
