Celebrating MLK Day While Finding New Sources

Tuesday, March 01, 2011 - 04:24 PM

There are different ways to get people to join our Public Insight Network. My favorite way is meeting people face to face at one of WNYC's special events.

For Martin Luther King Jr. Day, WNYC and WQXR hosted Made in America: King's Dream in Today's Economy. The speakers at the event really dove into King's ideas on labor rights and how all kinds of people should be given the opportunity to achieve the "American Dream."

A truly diverse audience came out to the Brooklyn Museum, where the event was held, and I was happy to capture some of that into the Public Insight Network. It's my goal to have people from all walks of life to sign up and become a news source for us.

Anyway, I'll be sure to post on my blog about any upcoming cultural events we're organizing. You could have a great time with WNYC.

Well, if you'd like to know who the speakers were and hear what they had to say, here's a full report of Made in America:
