Martin Luther King Jr. Rally & March participants, including faculty, staff and students from Saint George’s, gathered to watch a Rev. Happy Watkins video in the image above (photo by Dan Pelle, The Spokesman-Review). Watkins performed MLK Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech in the Spokane Convention Center on Monday, Jan. 15.
The speakers and subsequent march drew a diverse crowd, according to an article in the Jan. 16th Spokesman. “You can kill the dreamer, but you cannot kill the dream,” said motivational speaker Stephy Nobles-Beans, quoting King. “There’s a need for us to continue to lead the charge, to continue the dream that such an amazing man left us.” Read the Full Article in the Spokesman and view images from the rally and march.
