“Let’s Dream Again and March Forward. What the March was about then can be embraced for progress now – Economic and racial justice; hope; unified power for good; and nonviolent strategy and direct action.
On August 28, 1963, an estimated 250,000 people gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., for the historic March, a powerful protest that incorporated Ten Demands of the federal government. At the March, my father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., gave his prolific ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, advocating for economic and racial justice for Black Americans and conveying his dream that, in summary, was about creating the Beloved Community.
The Beloved Community is not a colorblind society where we ignore and don’t educate on injustice; but a just, humane society where we’ve worked to eradicate poverty, racism, militarism and all of their offspring.”
