Announcement :: DNC : Human Rights
Black and Green 2004
09 Feb 2004
This year the IIC celebrates the 11th annual Black and Green 2004: The Power of Words, Inspiring us to follow MLK’s Dream. The event takes place on Sunday, February 29,2004, from 2:00pm until 5:30p.m at the Montserrat Aspirers Community Centre, 358 Washington Street, in the Four Corners Square area of Dorchester. There is a suggested donation of $7 at the door and children are admitted free.

This theme follows the 30-year legacy that Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech sought to create. Our speakers and artists will empower and enlighten the audience by expressing how they have been effected by his dream. A delectable array of Caribbean dishes prepared by the Montserrat Aspirers round out this year's program.

Black & Green in Boston brings together a roster of speakers and presenters, including prominent community activists, government officials, and journalists. The event seeks to educate and unite Caribbean, African American, and Irish communities through language and art. We hope to leave our participants with a feeling of inspiration from the powerful words and performances that they will experience at our event.

This year’s event features the award winning poet and co-founder of the Black Arts Movement Askia Toure and Thomas Rice, renowned Irish author and former CEO of Interaction Associates. Darnell Williams, CEO of the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts will also speak about THE POWER OF WORDS, as it relates to Martin Luther King and Black History month. Featured poets, musicians, actors from the African diaspora and Irish community, will leave participants with knowledge and inspiration to celebrate diversity.
