When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, he had paved the way for others’ dreams to come true with his words and actions.

That is the case for the guest speaker at the “distinguished speaker series” at the salute to Dr. King event hosted by Donora Public Library, on Monday, Jan. 20. The featured speaker was Washington County Court of Common Pleas Judge Traci McDonald Kemp, the first African American woman to serve in that position. Judge McDonald Kemp is also the first black woman to hold a county-wide office.
“King was a civil rights leader whose movements and speeches and words changed a nation,” said McDonald Kemp. “A person who, through the movements that he had, was able to bring us to the situation where a person like me could be a judge in Washington County."
