Dr. Martin Luther King: ‘I Have a Dream’

Share this with your friends

August 28, 1963: Dr. King delivers one of the most passionate and resonating speeches for equal rights of all time. ‘I Have a Dream’ was delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. An estimated 250,000 people listened at the culmination of the March on Washington, an event that implored an end to racism, and for jobs as well as more freedoms for people of color. His words speak for themselves, so we honor this day and all days by continually pledging ourselves as activists to spread this same message for humankind. Thank you, Dr. King, and all freedom fighters for the dedication and bravery each day demands for the never-ending but all-important works that have been done, are being accomplished and shall be continued into the future.
