Lest We Forget - August 28, 1963 - Martin Luther King

On this day, August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his pivotal "I Have A Dream" speech to over 200,000 civil rights marchers assembled at the Mall in Washington.

Probably one of the most referenced speeches in history, Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech to a crowd of civil rights marchers estimated at over 200,000, assembled at the Washington Mall, August 28, 1963.

In light of how Dr. King's words have been distorted, taken out of context and abused in recent times, I thought it would be appropriate to run this speech in its entirety today as a reminder of how just powerful and universal his message was, and still is today.

Things you just don't want to forget.
