UMUC to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with Documentary Showing
Join the UMUC community on Friday, January 18, 2013, for the showing of a documentary that examines the life of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the March on Washington.
Video Presentation of “Martin Luther King: I Have a Dream”
Friday, January 18, 2013
Academic Center at Largo, Auditorium
King’s “I Have a Dream” speech stands today as one of the most famous and important speeches in modern history. As the cornerstone of the civil rights movement, it was a message of non-violent opposition to the blight of racism and discrimination in the United States. This video pairs the entire speech—delivered on August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.—with brief footage of other struggles and protests in the civil rights crusade throughout the 1960s.
Light refreshments will be served.
Seating is limited, so RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
