Martin Luther King adviser to speak at SEMO

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — An adviser to the Reverend Martin Luther King will speak at a Southeast Missouri State University dinner honoring the late civil rights leader.

The Cape Girardeau school says Clarence B. Jones helped write King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech while serving as his political adviser, counsel and draft speechwriter. Today, Jones is a visiting professor at the University of San Francisco and scholar writer in residence at the Martin Luther King Junior Research and Education Institute at Stanford University.

Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker previously was scheduled to speak at the King dinner. But Booker is currently campaigning for the U.S. Senate.

Tickets for the January 22nd dinner at Southeast Missouri State go on sale in December.
