Jobs, Freedom, and Civil Rights - One Man's Dream

August 28, 2008 marks the 45th anniversary of what has come to be known as the "I Have a Dream Speech." Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famed oratory was delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, as part of the historic March on Washington. The march was an event organized in support of jobs, freedom, and the advancement of the Kennedy administration's civil rights legislation. Though several individuals spoke that day, Dr. King's speech is considered "one of the greatest and most notable speeches in history." (Wikipedia.org)
