On Tuesday, May 7, 2019 Representative Chynah Tyler testified in support of H2799. The resolve, filed by MBLLC member Representative Bud L. Williams, is one of the first steps in the MBLLC's plan to erect a commemorative plaque in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1965 address to the Massachusetts Legislature.
The commemorative plaque will be placed in the House Chamber and will bear the words of the iconic leader who once proclaimed to the Legislature that "It was from these shores that the vision of a new nation conceived in liberty was born, and it must be from these shores that liberty must be preserved."
The full text of Dr. King's speech can be viewed here.
MBLLC log posts are curated by the Caucus Executive Director.
