YouthSpeaks-2014MLK_flyer-front (3)Do you love spoken word performances?

Every year, Youth Speaks gathers the community to celebrate the ongoing life and legacy of Dr. King. Our celebration — Bringing the Noise for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr— is a showcase of young people from throughout the Bay Area who have written, in their own voices, original works that grapple with the thoughts and work of the man, who are working to demand—in their own voices, in their lifetimes—huge leaps into possibility, an ongoing commitment to love like a consuming fire.

This year join us as we listen to excerpts of some of  Dr. King’s powerful oratory and witness the responses from our young people.

Youth Speaks presents The 17th Annual Bringing the Noise for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in San Francisco, CA at the Nourse Auditorium Monday, January 20, 2014 from 7pm – 9pm.
