Keene State gathers to 'Let Freedom Ring'
"Let Freedom Ring" was organized by the international organization the King Center for Nonviolence.
"I think that was one of the powerful parts of the civil rights movement. It was multi-generational. That's the kind of diversity we don't think about very often, age diversity."
West African native Balla Sankareh, who now lives in Keene, attended the ceremony with his wife."I've heard the parts and bits of the speech when I was back in my country but I've never had the opportunity to hear the whole speech, but today I took the chance to hear the whole speech," he said. "I thought I should come and see it."
"I think it's a great way to remember what Dr. King started and what he has set out for us to continue," he said.
During that hour the church would be open to people to come and listen to the bells or read a copy of the speech.
