It was 49 years ago today that Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln memorial. Today, the memorial to Dr. King sits just a short distance from there.

Take a minute to remember his legacy today. How far do you think we've come since 1963?

1. How far do you think we've come since 1963?



Within 5-years of that speech, JFK, Malcolm X, MLK, and RFK, had all been shot dead.

Some more recent MLK news...

2. This would be an appropriate speech to put on loud speaker in convention center vicinity.

Let it loop over and over and over again, play it 24/7 non stop for the next 3 days.

MLK
