  • 18th Annual Bringing the Noise for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (2015) Play all

    Live performances from our January 2015 performance at the Nourse Auditorium in San Francisco, CA.

    Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/YouthSpeaks

    Every year, Youth Speaks gathers the community to celebrate the ongoing life and legacy of Dr. King. Our celebration — Bringing the Noise for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — is not a reenactment of speeches, a slideshow, or a polite revue of well-honed platitudes. It is a showcase of young people from throughout the Bay Area who have written, in their own voices, original works that grapple with the thoughts and work of the man, who are working to demand—in their own voices, in their lifetimes—huge leaps into possibility, an ongoing commitment to love like a consuming fire. We create a safe space—a beloved community—where our young people can—in the presence of many—give voice to realities that must be understood, embraced, and integrated into our common lives if we are to survive.
