Realising the dream

On the 20th January 2009, Barack Obama will be inaugurated as the first black president of the USA.

Preparations are under way to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day in the light of this historic occasion. The event will trace the threads that stretch from Luther King to Obama, and how this relates to Burngreave, as well as reflecting on the desire for change and a better world that his victory embodies.

Join us in an evening of performance, art and discussion:

  • Monday 19th January 7pm,

  • the Welcome Centre, Nottingham Street.

All are welcome.

To get involved, or for more information, contact Nick on 07725 569 380 or

The next preparation meeting for the event will be on Thursday 11th December 7pm, at the Welcome Centre, Nottingham Street.
