Probably the most famous speech of the 20th century by Martin Luther King on Wednesday, August 28, 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.
Today would have been Martin Luther King Jr’s 88th birthday. Unfortunately, this great leader was gunned down while peacefully fighting against social and racial injustice. The content of this now famous speech is just as relevant today as it was almost 50 years ago.
Delivered to over 250,000 civil rights supporters, the speech is often considered to be one of the greatest and most notable speeches in history and was ranked the top American speech of the 20th century by a 1999 poll of scholars of public address
