Dream Hampton is many things: a writer, a cultural critic, a social activist, a community organizer, and an award-winning filmmaker. There’s something about Dream and her work that makes you pay attention. It might be her fearlessness and fighting spirit, almost as if she was born to speak out and stand up. After all, she’s named after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Although she spells her name in lowercase out of humility (and in homage to feminist Bell Hooks and poet E.E. Cummings), her legacy is larger-than-life.
