"I Have A Dream" 50th Anniversary Celebration


Join me at El Camino College - Compton Center on Wednesday, September 28th to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I have a Dream" speech, hosted by Congresswoman Janice Hahn, my office, and other very important community partners.

We will watch the "March on Washington" which occurred before the famous speech by Rev. Dr. Martini Luther King Jr.

Compton Unified School District students will recite the "I Have A Dream" follow by a musical tribute.

I will moderate a dialogue and the panel discussion "What the Dream Meant Then (1963)" and "The Current State of Dr. King's Dream" with:

  • Mr. Robert Farrell, Freedom Rider and former L.A. City Councilman
  • Rev. James Lawson, Mentor/Colleague of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Ms. Paulette Simpson-Gibson, President of Compton NAACP
  • Mrs. Geneva Phillips-Beaver, President of the Martin Luther King Democratic Club
  • Mr. Carlos Ornelas, Student Body President of Compton College
  • Ms. Natalia Cerilyn Su'a, Compton Unified School Student Board Member

Finally, the celebration will end with remarks from Rev. William Smart on "Moving Forward" and Congresswoman Janice Hahn.
