‘I Am Dr. King’s Dream’: Jaelen Hollinger

Powerful messages from students across Northeast Ohio as we celebrate Black History Month.

Here is Jaelen Hollinger's message:

"I am Dr. King's dream because I have inherited a legacy of hope, determination, and excellence symbolized by the young preacher from Atlanta.
Truth is -- my grandparents are this legacy.
My grandfather -- life-long minister that took food out of his own refrigerator, giving dignity to those in need -- he remains the greatest example of giving I have ever known; 
my grandmother is also Dr. King's legacy:
A first lady and life-long educator who chose love and courage over despair. 
She taught me every child deserves to be educated and cherished -- no matter where they were born, or who they are born to.
Yes, I am Dr. King's dream.
He would tell us be a drum major for justice.. Live a life of integrity.. And love your enemies as you would want to be loved.
I am Jaelen Hollinger, and I am proud to be Dr. King's dream."
