Ms. Rivers, a founding advisor to SIF, was the keynote speaker for the Teen Tech Program summer session commencement on Monday evening.  The event was held at the Vision Center on South Salina Street.

Below is a portion of her remarks, which skillfully interpreted and updated the essence of the “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. King. 

The “I Have a Dream” speech was given at the 1963 March on Washington 50 years ago on this day.
