50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's history-changing speech

 

    This Wednesday, August 28th, marks the 50th anniversary of the "March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom."

     

    That historic day in 1963 is now perhaps best remembered for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, which has taken its place among the most important speeches in our nation's history.

     

    Dr. King's "Dream" that his children would "one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" still inspires millions of Americans to this day.
