Synopsis: MLK Dreams on Screen is hosted by our Greater Grand Rapids Chapter of Jack and Jill teens. The purpose is to empower the teens to raise funds for the Jack and Jill of America Foundation, Family Promise of Grand Rapids and YWCA’s Helen Claytor Center for Girls’ Leadership program. The later are the two charities selected for the 2018-19 program year. MLK Dreams on Screen was created as a way for our teens to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., for the critical role he played in bringing light to injustices against African Americans through activism. The movie, "The Best of Enemies," aligns with the content of Dr. King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream," speech and depicts social, moral and political barriers minorities faced during those times. Your $18 ticket includes admission to the movie, a small pop and popcorn, as well as a donation to Jack and Jill of America Foundation, Family Promise of Grand Rapids and YWCA’s Helen Claytor Center for Girls’ Leadership program. Thank you in advance for supporting our fundraiser and we hope you enjoy the movie.
