In memory of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech
The Rocklin Campus community is invited and encouraged to participate in the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr's historic speech, "I Have a Dream."
We will meet on the Quad at noon on Wed, Aug 28 for a reenactment of the march, including the original songs and chants voiced 50 years ago. We will march around campus, returning to the Quad at approximately 12:30 pm. Upon our return, a collection of students will read the "I Have a Dream" speech to the audience over loud speakers from the Standing Guard Garden.
Then attend an inspirational talk by Eleanor and Tom Hunt, retired civil rights attorneys who attended the original march and speech in 1963. This family-friendly event is free & open to the public.
All listening are encouraged to write their own "I Have a Dream..." statement on large banners throughout the quad. This commemoration is open to all students, staff, alumni, children, and community members. We welcome everyone who will help us continue to strive towards the realization of the dreams of MLK and the Civil Rights Movement.
The Beyond Diversity Club will be on the Quad from Mon, Aug 26-Wed, Aug 28, making signs just like those from the original march. Come help us in this process!
