In fourth grade, I first heard of a man named Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In school, we read the "I Have a Dream" speech for the first time and I was instantly intrigued. I couldn't believe there was a time when black children and white children couldn't play together or that there was a time we couldn't eat at the same restaurant. My best friend that year in school was a black girl named Sharlotte Robinson and I couldn't fathom not having lunch with her or not being allowed to play tetherball with her at recess.
Wednesday, August 28th, 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of the "I Have a Dream" speech. I happened to be working at a local cafe that day and stumbled upon the article revisiting that historic day. I decided right then to place a cache in honor of this historic occasion. My daughter is a second grader and one of her closest friends is a black girl. When I see them together, holding hands in the lunch line or reading to each other it always makes me smile to see how far we've come.
