Plainfield, Ill. -- ?By Rick Koshko with information from Metro Networks

Illinois’ only African-American Republican lawmaker is weighing in on the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. John Anthony says he himself is an example of Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream for equality.

     Anthony was just sworn in on Monday to represent the 75th Illinois House District which covers part of eastern LaSalle County. He’s the first African-American Republican in the legislature in about 30-years. He says he’s the perfect example of Dr. King’s dream that people be judged on their character, not by their skin color.
