That's Dr. King, above, in St. Johns County Jail on June 11, 1964, after his arrest for asking to be seated in the. Monson Motor Lodge Restaurant, now the site of the Bayfront Hilton.
Here's the text of Dr. King's August 28, 1963 "I have a dream" speech:
On this 56th anniversary of Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech, we're celebrating the St. Augustine City Commission's agreement on August 26, 2019 (Monday) to place an historical marker in our Plaza de la Constitucion observing a n 1897 lynching of Isaac Barrett in northwest St. Johns County.
We're proud of our City Commissioners, staff and activists, and our Lincolnville Museum.
On the other hand, St. Johns County Sheriff DAViD SHOAR's website still contains a paen to racist corrupt Sheriff Lawrence O. Davis, still falsely stating that DAVIS was "exonerated" when he was in fact removed from office by 44-2 vote of the Florida Senate, and still falsely states that DAVIS held the town together, when he and his KKK deputies fanned the flames of racism that nearly got Andrew Young killed, and was repeatedly ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Bryan Simpson to stop lawbreaking.
While Judge Simpson has a federal courthouse named for him in Jacksonville, the only thing honoring Sheriff Davis is a lying tribute on the webpage of St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR.
So I wrote Sheriff SHOAR on August 28, 2013, 50th anniversary of the "I have a dream speech" by Dr. King, requesting corrections. .

For those of us in the reality-based community, here's the "fake news" still emitted by corrupt Sheriff DAVID BERNARD SHOAR, who legally changed his name from. "HOAR" in 1994:
