Sellers urges audience to help youth dream
The guest speaker at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at Cameron University challenged the crowd Monday to help youth dream with their eyes open.
Bakari Sellers, once one of the youngest African-American politician in the country and the son of civil rights activist Cleveland Sellers, used his own father’s story to help illustrate the importance of dreaming: not just the dreams that follow sleep, but, more importantly, the dreams that come with your eyes open.
Youth, Sellers said, can’t be expected to dream of being an attorney if they have never seen one. Or a politician. Or a president.
