Robertson County Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. (A 2013 Archive Report)

SPRINGFIELD/ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – COVID-19 has made gathering and public celebrations impossible so Smokey Barn News has gone into our archives, all the way back to Robertson County’s 2013’s celebration of the life of Martin Luther King Jr.

In the video above, the afternoon began with a parade, singing, speeches by city leaders, and performances by local youths. The day was fittingly capped with an incredible recreation of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s – I Have A Dream Speech at the Center in Springfield by Keith Pitts.

The video below is the full interpretive dance you’ll see a snippet of in the video above.
