Samuel Kelley, Africana Studies and Communication Studies departments, will bring to life Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech with a dramatic performance of King’s classic work on Wednesday, July 9, in Bailey Hall on the Cornell University campus, Ithaca, N.Y. Following his 7 p.m. performance, he will discuss the historical, socio-political, biblical and artistic influences that converged to give birth to America’s most famous speech of the 20th century. Placing King’s “dream” in a broader cultural context, Kelley will further explore how the dream of freedom and equality continues to propel people forward in their quest for social justice. Free and open to the public, the presentation is sponsored by Cornell's School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions.
