It is such a privilege to post, on this 50th anniversary – the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s address at the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, in Washington, D.C.

This is one of the most iconic and most important speeches EVER on the importance of valuing all human beings – and on judging them not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

The metaphors, imagery and alliterations in this speech are, in my opinion, unparalleled.  Dr. King’s speech was used as the example to follow in my Speech Fundamentals class 20 years ago, and it made a lasting impression on my mind and heart.

Some questions to ponder:

1.  50 years later, have we made progress and, if so, how?

2.  What about civil rights, freedom and liberty for the preborn?
