Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gives an impelling speech to thousands in D.C.

By: Amelia Gutierrez

I created a lead in the MLK speech. I begin speaking at :31 seconds.

What was predicted to be a small number to partake in the March of Washington for Jobs and Freedom, surprised many when more than 250,000 people participated in the march on August 28, 1963. What became as one of the most defining moments of the American Civil Rights movement, was not the large crowd, but rather the empowering and motivational speech delivered by Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. where he called for racial equality and an end to discrimination that left the greatest impression in our heart and in our mind.

To watch the rest of the MLK speeh watch this video.
