He Had a Dream...

Here is where it went down - way back in 1963 - when Martin Luther King, Jr. made his famous speech at the March On Washington.

It was in front of a crowd of more than 250,000 so this picture looked a little more like this:

Weaving in references to the country’s Founding Fathers and the Bible, King used universal themes to depict the struggles of African Americans, before closing with an improvised riff on his dreams of equality.

The eloquent speech was immediately recognized as a highlight of the successful protest, and has endured as one of the signature moments of the civil rights movement. (History Channel, 2019)

We couldn't come all the way here and not snap a picture of the goofball crew standing right where Dr. King stood to deliver this speech!

Grateful for agitators like MLK, Jr. and for a city that has preserved those sacred spaces and places!

“Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
