James Simmons, NAACP Casper Branch: “His vision was to have an America that would live up to its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal. There are a lot of individuals in this country that just don’t want to see individuals be equal and see them climb to their highest potential”

It’s not just Caucasians and African Americans that Doctor King was referring to.

Ivan Posay of the Eastern Shoshone business council, says Native Americans are one of many races that’s included in the dream as well…and like most other races, they have their share of obstacles to deal with.

Posay: “One time we inhabited this whole United States of America, but now we’re even a minority among minorities, but I understand and I realize that Dr. King’s message and efforts benefits us also.”

The march in Casper, was sponsored by the Casper branch of the NAACP.
