Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Legacy Continues

Students from the Roselawn Youth Community Council participated in the D& Me’s Martin Luther King Jr. speech competition, sponsored by the Charles H. Dater Foundation. Students were asked to use Dr. King’s speeches as inspiration to create an original speech on a current issue that they feel passionately about. First place winner Deion Huckleby made a video about the life of Dr. King and how the words of Dr. King have been personally inspirational to him. Deion is a 7th grader at Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies.
