Transcript of Dissecting the Dream

On August 28, 1963, American civil rights leaders organized a political rally in Washington DC calling for racial equality and an end to discrimination. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom became one of the largest political rallies in United States history. It is estimated that between 200,000 and 300,000 people participated in the march. The march had a powerful impact on the leaders of the country, helping convince them to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended racial segregation and outlawed major forms of discrimination against African Americans and women, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. During the rally, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered one of the most memorable speeches of his career--and one of the most important and influential speeches in American history--titled "I Have a Dream."
