"I Have a Dream... " DA Ireland honors Martin Luther King Jr., John Lewis & George Floyd

I Have a Dream, DA Ireland Honors Martin Luther King, Jr., Rep. John Lewis, & George Floyd

About this Event

On the Anniversary of the Civil Rights march on Washington DC, we come together in an online socially-distanced ZOOM circle to read aloud the words of Martin Luther King Jr.'s I HAVE A DREAM speech--to refresh our commitment to those words. We will also honor the late Congressman and civil rights leader, Rep. John Lewis, and the late George Floyd, taking a moment in silent meditation. Please join us.

Bring a bell--so when we come to the refrain, "Let Freedom Ring..." we RING it out loud and clear. Dr. King famously said, "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

In Washington D.C. this same day--the anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington--Martin Luther King III and Rev Al Sharpton are leading a march to the Lincoln Memorial--an echo of the original historic event. John Lewis was the youngest person to speak that day from the podium in 1963.
