Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech turns 50
WASHINGTON - Wednesday, Aug. 28 marks 50 years since the historic March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream” speech.
Over the weekend, equal rights advocates gathered in the nation's capitol to retrace those steps. Several civil rights leaders spoke to the crowd, including the Rev. Al Sharpton and Dr. King's son.
“We must embrace love and hold on to that powerful spiritual which inspired my father's generation and inspires us today,” King said.
President Obama will headline another event Wednesday, speaking along with former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.
