“For many, that dream is still very much alive, and in Tallahassee, it’s manifested in the numerous organizations and their volunteers who will be coming out to the Springfield Community Center on Jan. 21 to spread Martin Luther King’s message. “I take it as a great opportunity to add an extension to what Martin Luther King did,” said Lewis Thurston, who will be performing at the event with artists from his entertainment company, Positive Generation Entertainment. The group of young musicians aim to create music that has a positive influence on people. “He had a dream, he had a vision, to see everyone unite, and I feel like music is the best way to bring people together,” Thurston said.”
