"I Have A Dream" - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

MLK Jr. National Site Marker (Atlanta, Georgia)

The US serves as the base of The Global Loop right now.  That being the case, we feel it appropriate to bring you a bit of Americana.  The country celebrates the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Junior on the 3rd Monday of every January as a national holiday.  Federal offices, banks, and businesses take the day off and celebrations and event are often held around the country.

Since the main thrust of this entire site is to spread knowledge about lives and backgrounds of people and countries around the world, there is a direct line between the US Civil Rights movement and the existence of any of the electronic scribbles, doodles, and pictures that appear here.  With that in mind, we'd like to present, in its entirety, to you the most famous of Dr. King's speeches, dubbed the "I Have A Dream" speech that was delivered on August 28, 1963 at The National Mall in Washington, DC.:

If you have never heard this whole address before, we hope that you'll take the time to listen to the whole thing and then check out other speeches that you may find online.  Feel free to let us know about any other links you know about below AND spread this link around to all that you know.
