A public reading of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, “I Have a Dream” speech will take place Wednesday, Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Watertown Landing – the location of the Town Dock – on the Charles River in the heart of Watertown Square.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom where King gave his speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial facing the reflecting pool.
At the Watertown event, the Charles River will serve as this celebration's own "reflecting pool.”
This event is co-sponsored by the World in Watertown, Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice & the Environment, First Parish of Watertown and the Church of the Good Shepherd.
