During a weekend spent remembering Martin Luther King Jr., those who attended Cary’s MLK Dreamfest heard about the civil rights leader from someone who walked alongside him during the civil rights movement. Naomi King, 83, was married to the late Rev. A.D. King, who was Martin’s youngest brother. She came to Cary to talk about her book, “Two Brothers Who Dared to Dream.”
She also spoke of her husband, who died in 1969, one year after his brother. A documentary on A.D. King was screened before Naomi’s comments and included footage of her late husband and anecdotes from civil rights leaders about his life and impact on the civil rights movement.
Other Dreamfest events included a presentation of “I Rise Still,” a dramatic presentation of works by black writers in word and song, and a day of service on Monday.
