People across the nation celebrated the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s iconic “I have a dream” speech and the March on Washington.
In Lexington, a crowd came out to the Courthouse Square for a special observance of the 1963 March. The event was organized by the Lexington NAACP and the Central Kentucky Council for Peace and Justice. People of all ages came out to honor the anniversary.
In Washington, that march has been remembered in a week-long series of events, which culminated in remarks from President Obama on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Jamie Foxx were among a list of speakers.
