Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

A Great Work of Collaboration

A Video: “I Have A Dream”

Video Description:

“On August 28th, 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech. In 2012, Oakland University students, faculty, and staff came together to deliver their version of his iconic address.”

This video was screened at the opening ceremonies of the annual Keeper of the Dream Scholarship Awards Celebration.

As a former Keeper of the Dream recipient myself, I was honored to be able to participate, however small a way, in this great work of collaboration. I have a brief cameo beginning at 0:56 in the recording.

What do you think Dr. King would say today if he were able to see people come together such as they did in this video to recite his powerful message?

Wishing you Grace & Peace,

From Aspiring Humanitarian, Relando Thompkins, MSW

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
