Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Buffalo & Erie County Public Library

Downtown Central Library

Ring of Knowledge

12 – 1 p.m.

I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

US black civil rights leader and clergyman (1929 - 1968)

Speech at Civil Rights March on Washington, August 28, 1963
