BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — The city of Boynton Beach hosted a "I have a dream" event at their new amphitheater on Saturday.

The event featured musical performances and a student art showcase in honor of Dr. King.

Their goal was to promote inclusion and diversity.

"The theme for this month is umoja. Which is the Swahili word for unity because we want to make sure that we have everyone coming together in the city of Boynton Beach," said Boynton Beach Mayor Steven B. Grant.

The city plans on holding a similar event in January for Dr. King's birthday.
