On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Children’s Creativity Museum invited Yerba Buena Garden visitors to share their dreams with us, just as Dr. King did on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The dreams we saw and heard that day included everything from a private candy island, a pair of wings to fly to a grandmother and a college degree at their ideal university. Although the dreamers we met that day may have been all different, they were the same in the way that they inspired us with the the ingenuity of their creativity and limitless thinking. Although MLK Day comes around only once a year, these dreamers made us realize that it is always the time to dream.

Our educator Eli Africa recorded these dreamers sharing their hopes and visions for the future and compiled this video in tribute to Dr. King and all those who see inspiration in the face of adversity.
