Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream and i.c.stars ‘dares to dream.’ Each year, on MLK Day, i.c.stars brings these two together, inviting its supporters, alumni and their families to consider King’s legacy and to become agents of change in their communities.

This year, more than 100 i.c.stars stakeholders including technology, business and community leaders, government and academic representatives and their families will celebrate achievements of i.c.stars interns, alumni, staff, board, employers, volunteers, sponsors and their families.

Every Speaker has a song. This year we pay tribute to David Bowie for his groundbreaking artistry that caused generations of people to consider things differently.

Please enjoy the 2016 i.c.stars Stakeholders Soundtrack!
