On August 27, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wondered aloud about whether or not to use the phrase "I have a Dream" in his speech for the March on Washington. He was advised that the phrase was too trite, too cliché, and had already been used too many times.

With the aide of his advisors, King meticulously worked and reworked the wording of his speech. At 4 a.m. a final draft was decided upon and dispersed for print. This draft did not include the "I have a dream" section, which in impromptu fashion would later become the most recognizable portion of the "Let Freedom Ring" speech.

Transport yourself in time and join the 250,000 people that marched on Washington D.C. Sit back and listen to Martin Luther King Jr. impersonator Brother Moses deliver one of the most powerful speeches of all time.
