March on Washington – “We Shall Overcome”

I started poking through the National Archives database the other day and came across the official program from the August 28th, 1963 March on Washington. This would have been a good one to share on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Near the end of the program, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave what is one of the best and most powerful speeches in the history of mankind (which he completed writing while a guest at the Willard Hotel).

Watch his full speech in the video. It’s simply amazing.
