I Have a King Day
Our pal Rebel Girl at Dissent the Blog has a dream: it is a dream for a week worth of activities at Irvine Valley College dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr., and kicking off on his birthday today. Those activities include: a new on-campus Peace and Justice Center; an institutional adoption of Amnesty International's Prisoner of Conscience; a campus-wide re-creation of the 1963 March on Washington, D.C.; school Trustee Tom Fuentes (the former Orange County Republican Party chairman) reciting King's "I Have a Dream" speech; and, to cap the week in honor of Dr. King, the announcement that the school district has agreed to give classified employees a fair contract.
In other words, Rebel Girl's dream can only be dreamed.
