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 lifetimes—huge leaps into possibility, an ongoing commitment to love like a consuming fire.

Directed by Sean San Jose, this year's Bringing the Noise for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration features performances by local Bay Area artists including: members of the San Francisco Jazz All Stars, Danez Smith, Dennis Kim, DJ Dion Decibels and Young Gifted and Black.
