REQUIRES ADDITIONAL CLEARANCES Civil Rights March on Washington, Aug 28, 1963. MS/CUs Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivering "I Have a Dream" speech-- "I have a dream that one day down in Alabama with its vicious racists, w/ its governor having his lips dripping w/ the words of interposition & nullification, little black boys & black girls will be able to join hands w/ little white boys & white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today." "So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of NH. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of NY. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of PA! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of CO! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of GA! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of TN! Let freedom ring from every hill & every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring. When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village & every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men & white men, Jews & Gentiles, Protestants & Catholics, will be able to join hands & sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, Free at last! Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" Aerial of Lincoln Memorial.
