The Aurora University community gathered on the Quad today to listen to Dr. Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL11) offered remarks about this turning point in the fight for civil rights, while University Chaplain Jonathan Dean challenged those in attendance to remember Dr. King’s calling and consider what the activist might say to the community today.
