Illinois celebrates march anniversary

CHICAGO (AP) – A group of Chicago area pastors and Illinois elected officials are commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Several gathered Wednesday at a historic Chicago church where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once spoke. They told stories about King and then rang a bell at Quinn Chapel AME Church.

Hundreds of churches and groups did the same nationwide to commemorate King Jr.’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech.

Gov. Pat Quinn, Secretary of State Jesse White and U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly attended the event in Chicago.

White shared his memories of King. White attended college in Alabama and attended King’s church in Montgomery. He says King taught him about the world and had love in his heart for all.
