The Plymouth No Place For Hate Committee, Plymouth Public School District, and Plymouth Area Interfaith Clergy Association have planned a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech as part of the annual observance of Martin Luther King Day. The event opens with a breakfast at 8 a.m., Monday in the Plymouth South High School cafetorium, 490 Long Pond Road. Former Plymouth resident Cary Barnes, who graduated from Plymouth High School in 1962 and is currently an actor in New York City, will perform King’s famous speech.  The celebration will feature performances by the Pilgrim Festival Chorus, Plymouth high school musicians, and Plymouth’s Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church choir. Two local senior students will also be awarded scholarships. The celebration is open to the public. Tickets for the breakfast, $8 per person, can be purchased at local churches, from members of the Plymouth No Place For Hate Committee and at the door.
