A tradition at Arizona State University’s West campus that dates back to 1991 will continue at 11 a.m. Wednesday as Charles St. Clair reenacts Martin Luther King Jr.’s most famous speech.

The public is invited to attend this free event on the campus at 4701 W. Thunderbird Road in Phoenix. Visitor parking on campus costs $2 per hour.

St. Clair, a faculty member in ASU’s New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, will deliver the “I Have a Dream” speech as part of the West campus’ annual March on West event. More than 800 local middle school students will gather at the campus’ Paley Gates to reenact the 1963 March on Washington, which provided the setting for King’s speech.

St. Clair, an Emmy Award-winning actor and director, has served as an ASU faculty member since 1990. He is the 2011 recipient of the Promoting Inclusiveness Award from Glendale.
