Here at AMP Radio, we’re all about having fun and playing the hits, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a quick moment to honor one of the most important events in American history.

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream Speech.”

His powerful words were the driving force behind our nation’s Civil Rights Movement and still ring true half a century later.

President Obama will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March On Washington today (August 28) with a speech of his own at the Lincoln Memorial.

Former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, and Jamie Foxx will also attend today’s festivities.

Listen to Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream Speech” in its entirety below:
