Today's the 45th anniversary of MLK's 'I Have A Dream' speech

It was 45 years ago today that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered perhaps the single most important speech ever given in American history. And in as wonderful a tribute as could happen, the "I Have a Dream" speech's anniversary coincides with a day perhaps King was thinking of when he delivered his impassioned speech in Washington, D.C.--the day the first Black nominee for the U.S. presidency, Barack Obama, accepts his party's nomination.

Click here to read more of a story I wrote on today's anniversary for—and for plenty more from DiversityInc on today's anniversary, including some very interesting columns called "Ask the White Guy" from our Partner/Cofouner Luke Visconti. Additionally, below you will find the video of Dr. King's speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
