Beginning today through Wednesday, August 28th we’re asking people to share what their dream is with a photo, text and/or video using the social media hashtag #Dreamday.
Your dreams may be shared by NBC10 and NBC News.
We’ll be collecting all the messages and featuring them on TODAY and NBC Nightly News and highlighting them on NBCNews.com/DreamDay. Telemundo will also participate using the hashtag #misueñoes. Contributions will be featured on the their morning program “Un Nuevo Dia” and its evening magazine “Al Rojo Vivo.”
Telemundo will run special coverage of the 50th anniversary beginning Sunday on “Enfoque,” through Wednesday on “Noticiero Telemundo.”
NBC will also have special coverage in the days leading up to the 28th beginning with Meet the Press on Sunday August 25th. It will include a re-broadcast the 1963 program with Martin Luther King which took place just days before his March on Washington.
That one- hour Meet the Press program on Sunday the 25th will focus on the American Dream theme. Political leaders will also share the stories that helped shape their view of the American Dream. We are very encouraged by the number of stations that are carrying this program and hope even more will join in.
