H-F High will host Pursuing the Dream program Jan. 12

Homewood-Flossmoor High School’s 6th annual Pursuing the Dream program will be presented at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 12, in the Mall Auditorium.

The program, dedicated to celebrating Black history and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is free, but pre-registration is required due to COVID-19 regulations and space restrictions. All attendees — including children of any age — must have a ticket to enter the event. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.; masks will be required. To reserve your seat, register online.

The keynote address will be given by Cook County Commissioner Donna Miller. Speakers will include teachers and alumni, including a video message from Kayla Robertson, H-F alumna and professional Broadway actress.

Performances will be given by the H-F Inspirational Voices, H-F Steppers and the H-F Speech Team, in addition to a professional African dance group, Ayodele Drum & Dance.

A display from Inspire by Tyler will feature artwork by Tyler Clark, an H-F alumna.

“We hope you will honor us with your presence as we celebrate the multitude of first steps that have shaped and impacted this nation and the world abroad,” said Catherine Ross-Cook, H-F’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion coordinator.
