In commemoration of Dr, Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, which he made almost half a century ago, a group of distinguished panelists gathered on Aug. 6 at Dr. King’s alma mater to discuss the progress made and the problems faced by the African-American community in today’s economy.
Morehouse College was just the first stop on the U.S. tour known as the “Table of Brotherhood Project” sponsored by Chevrolet and General Motors. The project went to Memphis, Chicago, and eventually Washington D.C. The discussions are meant to celebrate Dr. King before the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial in Washington D.C., making this the first tribute in the nation’s capitol to a man of peace as well as a man of color.
