Speakers and dramatizations of Dr. Martin Luther King's famous "I Have A Dream Speech" highlighted a 90 minute observance of Martin Luther King day at Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, Illinois on Thursday. U.S. Congressman Bill Enyart spoke of racism he remembered from his youth, after he was introduced by President Georgia Costello. Members of the New Life In Christ Drama Ministry portrayed an interview of King's sister and daughter by a newspaper reporter, and three home-schooled sisters from East St. Louis concluded the presentation with their stylized dramatization of the famous speech by King.
