I Have A Dream

August 28, 1963: On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King delivers his "I Have A Dream" speech before a quarter million civil rights supporters. The "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom" was intentionally held on the 100th anniversary of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Rich in imagery and metaphor, the speech is hailed as a masterpiece of rhetoric, more moving and memorable than any speech in history: "I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood."
