Welcome to Audible Café!

I am so happy to bring you today’s show about the "I Have A Dream” / “Yo Tengo Un Sueño”  Four Kings Community Event taking place FRIDAY, February 28, 2020 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Whitney Museum of Art, 42 Wendell Ave, Pittsfield MA.

My guests today are:
Anaelisa Jacobsen — Founder and co-director of Manos Unidas Multicultural Education Cooperative
Mariam Orengo — Co-director of Manos Unidas
Kristina Cardot — Owner and artist at The Funky Phoenix, a salvage art and home décor in Pittsfield, Mass
Gretta Hirsch — who is a volunteer for Manos Unidas
Jay Torres — our young guest today who is active in Manos Unidas’ youth initiative

The Four Kings is a collaborative community event hosted by Manos Unidas and the Roots and Dreams Coop and other dedicated collaborators, to shake off the winter blues!

In the Latino culture, Three Kings Day is a very important event to celebrate the coming of the Three Kings to the Christ child, falling on January 6th, which includes re-enactment and gifts for children. Additionally, the “ I Have a Dream” Four Kings event will promote the values of love and equity of the “King of Social Justice”, Martin Luther King.

Connect with a diverse array of community members in this second annual “I Have a Dream” Four Kings Day tradition in the spirit of community generosity and love.

The event is free to all peoples, but there is a suggested donation of $10 per plate of food, and a suggested donation of $20 for the food and event per family, to raise money for the Hopeseed Empowerment Cooperative of Manos Unidas, which is helping build a multiclass, multicultural movement that assists in building cooperative business visions, as well as raising the capacity of our community to the next level of greatness.
