Martin Luther King – “I have a dream” speech

Taken from BBC Newslink 

On 28 August 1963, more than 200,000 Americans joined a march on Washington demanding equal justice for all citizens under the law.

On that day, the inter-racial crowd heard Martin Luther King deliver his famous speech, predicting a time when freedom and equality for all would become a reality in the US.

Here people whose lives have been touched by that moment reflect and share their memories half a century on.
