50 Years Ago

Those of you who have been to my office know that I have a poster of Martin Luther King Jr. standing in front of the crowd in Washington DC on August 28, 1963. The full text of his “I Have a Dream” speech is written just below his image. For me, it is a true inspiration to hear the vision and courage of the man as he stood up for what was right.

On this 50th anniversary of that day, lets take a moment and reflect on how far we have come, how much farther we need to go and the lessons we can learn along the way.

Here is the speech…enjoy!

“I Have a Dream” – August 28, 1963

    Hi Jeff,

    I have that same poster framed on my wall in my home office and I read this speech every year at Passover as part of our sedar. Excerpts from the speech are in our Hagadah. Thanks for sharing this; I think it is the greatest speech every written!
