"I Have A Dream"
On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. gave the speech that will soon change the ways of segregation. About 200 thousand, black and white, came to Washington to march by bus, train, car, or plane. After the march, speeches were made by famous people including Jackie Robinson. After a while, it was time for Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech. His speech, "I Have A Dream", was based upon the idea of freedom. That speech left the people to keep preventing segregation. And it worked for most people, but not for James Earl Ray, who assassinated Dr. King on April 4, 1968.
