Speaker tells how King’s words affected him
BLOOMINGTON — Even Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had more than one dream.
His most famous speech references his dream for social justice. One man who has spent his lifetime researching the civil rights activist has a similar dream for social equality, but believes it is okay to have some personal and even most likely, unrealistic dreams as well.
“I would like to play in the National Football League,” said Barry Scott, best known for his success as an actor, writer, producer, director, motivational speaker and voice over artist. The founder and producing artistic director of the American Negro Playwright Theater at Tennessee State University was the keynote speaker at Sunday night’s 23rd annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Fellowship Dinner at the Memorial Center at Illinois Wesleyan University.
