The Rev. Richard Gilmore of the Ypsilanti Second Baptist Church met Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. while the two attended seminary and was a personal acquaintance. He told those assembled at Trotter House: 'Martin would want us in the fray of it when we meet adversity...by virtue of his life many of you are able to go to school at the University of Michigan today. What happened to our dream? We've become part of the me generation, we're no longer proud of who we are. There was a time when we stood together and we were proud of who we were. If you intend to continue Martin's dream, you've got to wake up and say to yourself "I am free" ... Let the giant wake up clearheaded, with the commitment that freedom means something to help yourselves.'
