50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's March in Detroit
The Civil Rights Committee would like to thank the Local for allowing us to go to Detroit to attend the 50th anniversary of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech.
The speech was written at UAW Solidarity House in an office provided to Dr. King by UAW President Walter Reuther. It was read at a march in Detroit before the march in Washington, DC.
We were able to hear speeches from the son of Dr. King, Al Sharpton, Reverend Jesse Jackson and many more.
