The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963 was a pivotal point in black history, but more importantly in American History. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave his famous “I Have a Dream Speech” that is as rousing and relevant today as it was fifty years ago. It was and is a call for equality and jobs and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual preference. The dream lives on.
