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.

    The issue is an issue tbat nott enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    • Thank you so very much for your kind comment. I’m so glad that you enjoyed this post. What you say is true, we need to keep an open dialogue about what happened in the ’60s to bring those dreams to fruition. In due time, I hope.
