A Beacon For Dr. King’s Dream
A Beacon For
Dr. King's Dream
On Friday, January 16, P.S. 106Q held its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Assembly. The assembly's theme was, "Music from the Movement to Keep Us Moving in a Positive Dir ection." The stage was decorated by the students and reflected the multiculturalism of the school.
The setting: a rainbow of handprints reaching out to each other on a red, black and green background. In the center of the montage of handprints was a portrait of Dr. King. The students read original poems that reflected their hopes and dreams for themselves and for the world. The students in the 21 Century After-School Prog ram, choreographed by Alexis Pierce, danced to the tune, "Of the Dream Inspired." Songs from the movement were sung by the students and audience led by Ms.. Sully and Ms. Lem berger, music teacher. Dr. King's famous "I have a Dream Speech" was read by Ernest Brown, a school board member and Guy Barfield, vice president of the PTSA.
The audience was entertained as well as inspired to continue to keep Dr. King's dream alive.
