50 Years Ago today

Remembering the 1963 March for Jobs and Justice in Washington, D.C. -- today we celebrate the hope that was launched that day with Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. It is also a day to carry the dream forward. The hope has been steadily met with resistance, yet the hope persists as long as there are people of good conscience. Here is the speech Dr. Martin Luther King gave that day, in it's entirety.

 "Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy."
