Since King’s August 28, 1963 speech on the Lincoln Memorial steps, our country has undergone dramatic changes in civil liberties, slowly moving closer to a society that nurtures justice and equality for all people, regardless of race, creed, color, religion, or ethnicity.

Today should be a time to recall our roots and remember what it means to fight for our rights. Yet, as I reflect on the underwhelming progress our nation has made since Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech and the current inaccessibility of his historical sites, it is clear that there is still serious work to be done.

You may be unable to visit a national landmark in Dr. King’s honor, but no one can prevent you from courageously living out his dream. Fight prejudice and demand action by our leaders. As America did in August of 1963, it is time to stand up, speak out, and fight back.
