SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Lincoln Museum in Springfield plans to mark Martin Luther King’s birthday with two dramatic readings of the slain civil rights leader’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Actor Reggie Guyton will read the speech at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 16 in the museum’s main plaza.

Also on Martin Luther King Day, the museum is offering free admission to community groups that register in advance. The event allows groups to tell the public about their contributions to the community at informational booths in the museum plaza.

Every Sunday in January and on the King holiday Jan. 16, a group of four people can tour the museum for $10 if they bring a new, unopened board game for donation to Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Springfield.
