50 Years Later: (R)Evolution of the Dream.
On August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C., the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered a seventeen-minute speech calling for an end to racial discrimination. His oration, later known as the “I Have A Dream speech,” was the culmination of “The March On Washington for Jobs and Freedom.” Dr. King delivered his first version of the speech in Detroit on June 23, 1963, outside Cobo Hall after leading 125,000 people in the “Walk to Freedom” down Woodward Avenue.
