Still as compelling today as it was 50 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King's 'I have a dream speech' given in the shadow of the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963 is getting deserved recognition on its anniversary.
Even if you've only heard a short clip of the speech, it's nearly impossible to read the text without hearing Dr. King's voice.
President Obama will be commemorating the speech and the March on Washington on Wednesday from the same steps Dr. King addressed more than 250,000 civil rights supporters. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter will join him there. I can only guess that the other living former POTUS have something better to do than celebrate this milestone of freedom for all men and women.
