On August 28 at 3:00 pm EST, 50 years to the hour of the exact time and date when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous I Have a Dream speech, the King Center is calling on us to reaffirm Dr. King’s message of “Let Freedom Ring.” Click here to watch speech. The King Center hopes there will be programs in sites globally and they encourage local creativity, like: Arrange to ring the largest bell (and/or as many other bells) in your city, state or nation; Encourage churches, temples, mosques, community centers and schools to ring bells; Create any other activity – small or large – that would have meaning where you live.
King Center CEO Bernice A. King said, “Join us as we pause to mark the 50th anniversary of my father’s ‘I Have a Dream‘ speech with ‘Let Freedom Ring’ bell ringing events that affirm the unity of all people of all races, religions and nations.” For more information, click here. Let’s come together around the globe to commemorate history: let freedom ring!
