Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. marched with 250,000 civil-rights supporters in Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963. At the Lincoln Memorial, King delivers one of the most famous speeches of the civil-rights movement by opening with what has become one of the most quoted lines in history: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character."
