In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s  “I Have a Dream” speech and the March on Washington, the Caucus of African American Leaders (CAAL) and partners hosted a reenactment in Annapolis, Md., on Aug. 26.

The Morgan State Marching Band led the march, which began 10 a.m. Led by statewide civic and religious organizations the crowd bore signs advocating on civil rights issues of today.  The procession began at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium, then proceeded to Clay Street, past the Banneker-Douglass Museum to view the mural, on to Church Circle and down Main Street before ending at the Annapolis City Dock.

A formal program was held at the Susan Campbell Park at noon, where 1963 March participants were honored and Morgan State University President David Wilson gave the keynote address. Willie Flowers, president of the NAACP Maryland State Conference, also made remarks.

The Aug. 26 event was part of a two-day commemoration. Sunday’s activities were expected to include a health resource fair and worship service.
