CANTERBURY, N.H. (AP) — One group participating in commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech is the Canterbury Shaker Village, which is holding a special tour and bell ringing this week.

The King Center for Nonviolent Social Change has invited people nationwide to celebrate his vision by ringing bells at 3 p.m. on Wednesday. The state of New Hampshire is participating.

The village will have a special tour at 2 p.m. that day, “Shakers & Equality: Let Freedom Ring.” It will connect visitors with the Shaker ideals of gender and racial equality.

The tour will culminate in the ringing of the 500-pound Paul Revere bell atop the Dwelling house.
