LYNCHBURG–Randolph College will join with Lynchburg College to hold special readings of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech Friday, Sept. 3 at 12:30-1:30 p.m. Randolph’s event will take place at the flagpole on front campus. Lynchburg’s reading will be held on the steps of Hopwood Hall.

The readings mark the 47th anniversary of the speech.

“We felt this was something we needed to do to remind people what the Civil Rights Movement was all about,” said Brad Bullock, a sociology professor helping to organize the event. “Dr. King’s speech is not just a civil rights message. It is a message of hope and a reminder of what America is supposed to be about.”
