Watch Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have A Dream’ Speech [VIDEO]

Today is Dr.  Martin Luther King Jr day.  Originally made a holiday by President Reagan in 1983 and first celebrated in 1986, this is a day where we remember a great man who fought for equality and justice. A recent push has been made to take this day and not treat it as a day off, but as a day on. A day to give back to your community by volunteering, donating, or whatever you can do to help society in the ways Dr. King would.

Dr. King gave many great speeches during his lifetime, but is probably best known for one particular phrase…”I have a dream.”  That phrase was taken from the speech he gave at the March on Washington on August 28, 1963.  It was there, 100 years after Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation, that Dr. King gave his speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial to the 200, 000 people gathered there.
