1:30pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
DORCHESTER’S town crier Alistair Chisholm treated the county town to a rendition of Martin Luther King’s famous ‘I have a dream...’ speech half a century after the original.
The town crier delivered the speech to shoppers in South Street 50 years to the day from when the civil rights campaigner addressed thousands in Washington DC.
He said: “There has been a lot of talk about it and there’s nothing quite like reading the whole thing.”
In America President Barack Obama will mark the anniversary today with a speech delivered from the same spot Mr Luther King gave his address at the Lincoln Memorial.
