WASHINGTON, D.C. – The fight for civil rights may have  been one of the ugliest times in our nation’s history,
but we came out a better country thanks to the work of ordinary citizens and civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr, who delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial nearly 50 years ago.

It was his dream that changed people’s lives forever. Which is why people from across the country converged on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. over the weekend. In commemoration of the historic Civil Rights March on Washington and the work of leaders like King, and so many unnamed others.

Saturday’s the first of two rallies celebrating the civil rights event.
