MLK Reenactment (2019)

On August 28, 2019 Providence Elementary IB World School did the reenactment of the March on Washington. The March on Washington is when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his iconic "I Have A Dream Speech". The students at Providence had the opportunity to recreate that moment in history. Students marched together and sung the song, We Shall Overcome. The atmosphere was exciting yet calming as the chorus sung and the students marched in to sit together as a whole. Student engagement was amazing as you saw all the different faces and races coming to together to witness this iconic speech given 56 years ago that still holds power even during todays time. Demeacus Ray, a fourth grade teacher at Providence gave the speech. As he spoke the students sat quietly and engaged with such enthusiasm. This was a day when all students, teacher, staff, and administration came together to celebrate a dream that is now a reality.
