MLK's "I Have A Dream" Speech Delivered In Detroit

Monday, January 19, 2015

In honor of today's holiday, we revisit the historic delivery of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech in it's first form at the Great March on Detroit. It is June of 1963 and Dr. King stands not before the Lincoln Memorial, addressing an audience of 200,000, but in Detroit two months before addressing a crowd of 500,000.
