"I have a dream" 50 years later

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made history 50 years ago on August 28, 1963 when he delivered his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, calling for civil and economic rights for African Americans.
MLK began by reading notes from a prepared speech. Then he heard gospel singer Mahalia Jackson say,“Tell ‘em about the ‘Dream,’ Martin, tell ‘em about the ‘Dream.’ ” 
King paused, pushed his prepared remarks aside, and began:

Even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream".

”I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”...

On the 50th anniversary of this historic event, President Barack Obama will commemorate the March on Washington and deliver remarks from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
