50th anniversary of MLK’s “I have a dream” speech

on Aug 30, 2013 in Blog by

I watched and listened to much of the event honoring the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I have a dream speech.”

It was inspiring and prompted me to watch the entirety of Dr. King’s speech again. We hear the sound bytes from the speech often enough, but listening, really listening, to his entire message was well worth my time. It is a reminder of the obstacles that had to be overcome, an opportunity to reflect on the progress that has been made, and a reminder there is much to do still today.

“I say to you today, my friends, though, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.”

—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., August 28th, 1963
