It's Black HIstory Month, so schoolchildren around the country are (likely, hopefully) getting a refresher on the Civil Rights Movement. A highlight of the movement was the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream Speech" delivered on the National Mall as part of the August 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
