ABOUT 200 students from Suva Methodist Primary School visited the American Embassy last Friday to mark 50 years since Martin Luther King Junior's iconic 'I have a dream' speech.
Deputy chief of mission Jeff Robertson spoke to the students of the famous activist's march in Washington on August 28, 1963, in which about 200,000 people from all walks of life gathered to fight racial injustice and inequality.
"Every person I have ever spoken to in Fiji, regardless of background, would like to see more harmony in Fiji, and what better place to work than with the young, before they form their prejudices," Mr Robertson said.
"We are all equal and we should love, care for, and respect one another regardless of our race or cultural background," he told the students.
Class Five student Timoci Narogo, 11, said he learnt the importance of promoting and fighting for equality.
Headteacher Taito Weleilakeba said he was delighted with the assistance they received.
