Months before Martin Luther King Jr. made his “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial, he spoke those iconic words at a school in Rocky Mount. NC State English Professor Jason Miller and others are re-staging King’s first ever “I Have a Dream” speech in historic Booker T. Washington Gymnasium at 6:00 pm on Friday, February 23. The recreation of the event will be filmed for use in Miller’s documentary film about King’s visit, entitled Origin of the Dream.
