The famous "I Have a Dream" speech was delivered by civil rights activist Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. on August 28, 1963 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The crowd included over 250,000 civil rights supporters and the speech (and its title, as in this button) went on to become one of the most well-known and cited texts of the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. In it, King expounds upon a dream he has for a future in which Americans of all different backgrounds can live together in a spirit of equality and peace.
