Remembering MLK: ‘I Have a Dream’ Scholarship

Martin Luther King As a young student, I can remember sitting in my English class listening to a recording of Martin Luther King, Jr. delivering his famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. The conviction in his voice reverberated through my body, and I could almost feel what it must have been like to stand among 200,000 protesters, watching as he delivered those immortal words.

Choose Your Words Wisely!

Shout it Out Rarely does a person get an opportunity to address a nation or the world; it’s usually during times of great hardship or war. Even then, few are able to capture our attention for any length of time. It takes a certain skill, but given the right circumstances and speaker, words can start a movement or create change.
