Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony will join leaders and freedom fighters from the international community and the family of the late Martin Luther King Jr. to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the “March on Washington” on Wednesday August 28, 2013.

According to a press release Dr. Anthony was invited by the daughter of Dr. King, Bernice A. King to the 50th Anniversary “Let Freedom Ring” closing commemoration and Call to Action in Washington.

The release said that King’s invitation letter indicated that “speakers and special guests are expected to include 1963 march participants and their representatives, including Rep. John Lewis and the King family, President Obama, along with former Presidents Clinton and Carter, Congressional Leaders, and many prominent international leaders.”

The release further stated that, “The fiftieth anniversary celebration will remember, reflect and act upon the dream shared with the world on August 28, 1963, through Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech. This dream was a pivotal moment in American and world history.”

“This historic milestone is commemorated to reaffirm the continued struggle to “secure jobs, justice and freedom for all people.” This commemoration is expected to reignite the world’s passion by issuing a call to action to every individual to rededicate and commit themselves to all aspects of freedom under the theme, “Let Freedom Ring,” the release said.

The prime minister will leave Saint Lucia on August 27, 2013, immediately after the sitting of the House of Assembly and return this weekend to attend his constituency conference.

Infrastructure Minister Philip J. Pierre will serve a deputy prime minister in Dr. Anthony’s absence.
