Martin Luther King's 'I have a dream' speech

It was on this day in 1963 that the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place.  At this event, Dr Martin Luther King delivered a 17 minute speech which became known as the 'I Have a Dream' speech.  It came to be regarded as one of the finest speeches in the history of American oratory and helped put civil rights at the top of the agenda of reformers in the United States.
