A Circle of Dreams will bring together people representing the diversity of the community of Monroe. We invite everyone to celebrate their determination to become the "beloved community, " the goal of Dr. King who was assassinated on April 4, 1968. On April 8, 1968, Mrs. King, along with her three oldest children, Yolanda, Martin and Dexter led a march in Memphis, Tennessee which Dr. King was scheduled to lead. This event is in commemoration of that march that took place 38 years ago.
-this is something we were invovled in preliminary organizing for last spring, I think it would be wonderful if everyone could mark it on there calenders.
