Presented by the San Antonio Martin Luther King Jr. Commission and DreamVoice, DreamWeek soars into its second week. The 12-day summit, which seeks to “inspire and motivate the community to action,” includes speakers, workshops, performances and celebrations that revolve around 12 key themes: city, sports, cuisine, health, youth, environment, technology, education, arts, spirit, justice and business. This week’s highlights include The MLK Jr. commemorative lecture by anti-racist essayist, author and educator Tim Wise (free, 7:30pm Thu, Laurie Auditorium, Trinity University, One Trinity); Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni’s one-woman show One Drop of Love—a multimedia performance produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck that explores race, family, love and pain ($34.50, 2pm & 8 pm Sat, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle); and Roxy Roca’s expressions of love and soul music with “Happiness Is A Choice” presented by Muze Collective Magazine. The week culminates with one of country’s largest MLK marches, an unforgettable 2.5-mile journey uniting thousands of individuals along with civic, social and religious organizations.
