A new book, to be published by MIT Press in mid-March, commemorates two decades of MIT's annual celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Reflections of the Dream, 1975-1994: Twenty Years Celebrating the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has been edited by Dr. Clarence G. Williams, special assistant to the president of MIT, ombudsperson and adjunct professor of urban studies. Dr. Williams has played a major role in the annual events honoring Dr. King as a long-time member of the Planning Committee for the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Activities.
The book presents the words of the keynote speakers at the MLK celebration, concluding with the remarks of Coretta Scott King, delivered on the 20th anniversary of the observance in 1994. The 1995 speech by A. Leon Higginbotham is included as an appendix.
