Bringing together speeches given at the Institute's annual King day convocation, Reflections of the Dream celebrates two decades of commitment by MIT to honoring the memory and furthering the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. In reading these speeches, one catches in reflection twenty years of turmoil and change—some positive (including an increasing number of speakers drawn from the ranks of MIT's African American alumni/ae) but much negative—in which Dr. King's dream has been a continuing beacon for action.
