About the 2023 Theme
There is but one race—The Human Race. This message was articulated very clearly by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a visionary who insightfully and eloquently challenged one’s perspective about humanity and the American experience. America’s strength is her shared differences with other creeds and cultures. It is our differences that make us uniquely gifted and strong, as evidenced by a mutual presence that intertwines our destiny. Our differences are not to be shunned or silenced. We have opportunities to applaud and celebrate our uniqueness recognizing America is more than a country. While it is the “dwelling place” for those who desire peace and prosperity, it is also a “destination point” for brethren seeking the possibilities of positive change.
This year’s theme is Drum Majors for the Dream. A Diverse Parade for a Diverse Community.
