Boys and Girls Club Students Express King's Dream
SAN ANTONIO - Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream and so do young people with the Boys and Girls Club of San Antonio.
Now they are expressing those dreams through art – chalk art, that is.
The artistic expression is one of several Dream Week events leading up to Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 18.
The Boys and Girls Club is just down the street from where the march will take place, and members of the staff says they wanted a way for the children to reflect King’s message of racial equality and justice.
"What Martin Luther King said decades ago still applies today, it still applies to their lives and what they're doing,” says Zuani Villarreal of the Boys and Girls Club.
Villarreal added that the Boys and Girls Club will also take part in the upcoming march.
