We are the dream. An HBO documentary about the MLK Oratorical
Wed, Jan 29 10:31am

Hello Kaiser Families:

 

Each year Kaiser students participate in the MLK Oratorical Fest.   Yesterday was our site competition when students bravely presented in front of a panel of judges.   Some of those students will advance all the way to the final Oratorical event.

 

Last year HBO Documented this journey of students across Oakland and produced the film We Are the Dream: The Kids of the Oakland MLK Oratorical Fest.   This will premiere on HBO on February 18 and there will be local viewing opportunities as well.   

 

Ms. Hunter's 2018-19 class (now 4th graders) are among those featured in this film!  Ms. Hunter will be reaching out to these families about a special invitation only screening on February 11 at the Fox Theater!

 

You can view a trailer and find out more about the film at https://www.hbo.com/documentaries/we-are-the-dream

 

Kudos to Kaiser students for letting your talents shine!   Thanks to Ms. Hunter and all Kaiser teachers past and present who have supported students in the MLK Oratorical Fest.
