BRAWLEY — Martin Luther King Jr. never gave a speech at Hidalgo Elementary School here.
On Monday, however, students at Hidalgo experienced what a sermon by King might be like if he were alive.
It was not just a sermon but facts and stories about King the kids heard Monday, all told by Phil D. Wallace, 33, of Memphis Tenn.
Wallace is a performer with Mobile Ed Productions Inc. of Redford, Mich. Wallace travels across the country visiting schools to teach students, through performance and speeches, about the lives of some heroic African-Americans who fought for civil rights.
Wallace said, "I love seeing their (students') faces light up when they learn something new. That's what drives me across the country.
