On August 28, 1963, more than 250,000 civil rights supporters gathered in Washington, D.C. to hear Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Listeners stretched from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial all the way to the Washington Monument, a distance of nearly one mile (1.3 km). Today—the third Monday of January—marks Martin Luther King Jr. Day in America, a day to remember his life and contributions to the Civil Rights Movement.
