Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of MLK's Historic "I Have A Dream" Speech on the Capitol Steps

On August 28, 1963, people from every corner of our country united and marched onto Washington with a shared message of civil liberty, civil rights, and economic freedom and opportunity for all. Also demanding racial justice and equality for everyone, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered one of the most famous speeches in history, declaring "I have a DREAM!"

August 28, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of this historic event. Join Governor Gary R. Herbert and the Utah Office of Multicultural Affairs in celebrating "Let Freedom Ring!"
