Commemorations held across country to honor Martin Luther King Jr.
Tribune wire reportsVisions of what Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would do to promote civil rights in 2014, had he not been slain decades ago, marked speeches and commemorations held across the country to honor his memory on Monday.
Recalling King's famous "I Have a Dream," speech, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said the late civil rights leader would want school children to hear it as a call to stay in school and become educated to better the world.
"We need to swap the lesson plan for a dream plan," Reed told a crowd at Ebenezer Baptist Churchgathered for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day federal holiday.
