Come out and enjoy the vibes as Chicago born and Virginia bred human rights activist, Ronnie “iRon Lion” Brandon, who is also a former Radford University student, recites the “I have a dream” speech, in honor of Dr. King. The two will also perform a few conscious reggae/soul sets to add some goodness to the night! Open mic will start the night off for those who want to express what Dr. King means to them!

***In 2010 iRon Lion and Davina Jackson recorded their collaboration single “Love Me” and performed it at The Sprint Pavilion as openers for reggae legend Jimmy Cliff!
