Photos: Students Celebrate Martin Luther King

January 15, 2015

[Updated with video] Governor George Fergusson and Junior Education Minister Leah Scott joined former principal Dalton E. Tucker and the students of Dalton E. Tucker Primary in their annual reenactment of the March on Washington in order to commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. today [Jan 15].

Both the Governor and Ms. Scott walked with the students to Maximart and then returned to the school for an assembly, where students recited “Dream Speeches.”


The March on Washington took place on August 28, 1963, with hundreds of thousands of American citizens attending a Washington D.C. political rally that included Dr. King’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech.

The 17-minute speech – watched by millions on live TV – is credited with helping spur passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act the following year. Dr King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and became an international hero before he was assassinated in Memphis in 1968.

    That’s good, hopefully they wouldn’t have to repeat this march in another ten years or so.
