“The Dream” event taking place on Cedarville University’s campus, sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA), will serve as an important reminder of the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. This time of commemoration will occur in the Center for Biblical and Theological Studies Atrium on January 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

“It will be a time for us to commemorate and remember Martin Luther King Jr., ‘The Dream’ speech, and the civil rights movement that started and sprouted at that time,” said Grace Sincock, the vice president of SGA at Cedarville.

The event will center on King’s passionate and emotional “I Have a Dream” speech and feature thought-provoking live music from the time period of the civil rights movement and art portraying the magnitude of the events occurring during this time period. Cedarville students will also be performing original spoken word arrangements and other speeches from the Civil Rights Movement.

The format of the event will allow for those attending to walk around freely and spend their time observing the different pieces of the event and enjoying the refreshments.
