Durham Museum presents “The Dream Lives On” to over 2,300 area students
In celebration of Black History Month, The Durham Museum is proud to present “The Dream Lives On” the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., told by historical re-enactor, Stephon Ferguson. From the pulpit of Dexter Avenue in Montgomery, Alabama to the Teatro Lope de Vega in Madrid, Spain, Ferguson has raised brows and brought chills and tears to people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds by delivering dead-on, pitch perfect renditions of Dr. King’s speeches and sermons. His mission is to share his gift with the world to help continue the legacy of Dr. King by not only performing King’s words but more importantly educating people about his philosophy of love, nonviolence, peace and unity to help bring about positive change. Ferguson, a New York native residing in Fayetteville, NC, travels throughout the nation delivering the powerful words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The Dream Lives On” will be presented to over 2,300 area students February 7-9 as part of The Durham Museum’s Scholars in Residence Program. The Durham Scholars in Residence initiative is an educational outreach program developed to promote academic enrichment in area schools and community organizations for all age levels. The Durham Scholars in Residence program provides support to curriculum as well as current topics of local and national interest. The Scholars in Residence Education Series is sponsored by the Lincoln Financial Foundation, Sunny Durham Family Foundation, Carol Gendler, the Criss Memorial Foundation and the A. Cydog Charitable Trust.
