VIDEO: Martin Luther King – “I Have A Dream”

Over 50 years after he spoke the words “I Have A Dream” to a crowd gathered on the National Mall, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s words still ring in the soul of the United States of America.

Here, you can watch his entire speech as it happened in Washington DC on August 28th, 1963. Commonly referred to as the ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, this address was King’s rallying call to the entire nation to embrace equality, non violence and progress together.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” – Martin Luther King Jr.
