Blade Pages of Opinion seeking submissions for ‘We Have a Dream’ project


The Pages of Opinion invite Blade readers to help narrate the importance of Black History Month through the prism of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. But instead of his dream, it will be ours.

We are looking for essays, photos, videos, songs, and drawings about what the month means to you, and how we can use our individual strength to empower all people. We encourage schools to take this on as a project, but we also hope to hear from adults who have dreams for their coworkers, neighbors, friends, and community.

A photo or video could range from diversity exploration in everyday life to participation in a Black History Month program. The Blade will republish some of the contributions, in print and online. You can email your offerings to Please include your name, home address, and daytime telephone number.
