Wednesday, August 28, 2013 marks 50 years since one of the seminal events in the civil rights movement In America: the March on Washington.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., among other movement leaders, spoke to approximately 250,000 assembled on the Mall on Washington. His "I Have a Dream" speech spoke of a world when all races are treated equally.
Now, half a century later, is a good time to reflect on the accomplishments made and what is still a work in progress.
