DreamWeek Highlights

It may be a new year, full of possibilities, etcetera, but, let’s face it, things are pretty depressing in America today. A hate-spewing imbecile is polling well in the GOP primaries, mass shootings are basically a daily occurrence, and when you watch the news, it seems that the superficial, the bigoted and the ignorant are the majority. In such a context, it’s not hard to see DreamWeek, “a 12-day summit [hosted in San Antonio and] developed to promote an exchange of ideas on universal issues facing our multicultural communities,” as a necessary injection of hope, empathy and reason. The onslaught of associated events begins Friday with a keynote breakfast address by Martin Luther King III (7:30am, Briscoe Western Art Museum, Jack Guenther Pavilion, 210 W. Market St.), and wraps up January 19. Besides the opening talk, other early DreamWeek highlights include Men Against Violence Against Women (noon Sat, San Antonio Mennonite Church, 1443 S. St. Mary’s St.) and Voter Registration Rock (8pm Sat, The Phantom Room, 2106 N. St. Mary’s St.). Free, times and locations vary, visit or call (210) 444-2315 for details. — JC
