Rev. Bernice King Talks About Her Father's Symbolic Speech

Aug 28, 2013

On this day 50 years ago, a sea of marchers carrying signs that read “We Demand Voting rights Now” and “End Segregated Rules in Public Schools” blanketed the National mall in Washington D.C.

What’s now become one of the most significant events within the civil rights movements, the March on Washington is a half-century old.

And the I Have A Dream speech given Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, has become symbolic.

Today, numerous events are taking place.

And for the youngest of the King children, it’s an opportunity to help mark the historic milestone. 

As we hear from WABE’s Rose Scott, Rev. Bernice King reflects on the 50th anniversary of the March, the speech given by her father and continuing his dream for equality.
