August 28 marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most monumental events in the civil rights struggle, the 'March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom' was one of the largest political rallies for human rights in U.S. history.
Hundreds of thousands converged on the National Mall to march from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial in support of civil and economic rights for African Americans.
The event ended with one of the most iconic moments in the Civil Rights Movement when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “I have a dream” speech. Read the full text of King's speech at http://wfts.tv/147BEEg .
