News Display: MLK, Jr. Speaks to March on Washington

At the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to a crowd of some 250,000 people. At the peaceful rally for civil rights, King was one of many speakers who had but seven minutes at the podium --but he was so inspired after urging citizens not to "wallow in the valley of despair", that he launched into the speech that became as famous as the Gettysburg Address.

We will highlight the historical and long-lasting significance of MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech at the March on Washington.
