Hoy 28 de Agosto se cumplen 50 años del famoso I HAVE A DREAM en el discurso de Martin Luther King Jr.
El discurso de Martin Luther King Jr., pronunciado el 28 de Agosto de 1963 desde las escalinatas del Monumento a Lincoln durante la Marcha en Washington por el trabajo y la libertad, significó un momento clave para el Movimiento por los Derechos Civiles en Estados Unidos y para la igualdad entre negros y blancos.

Por si queréis ver la parte más emotiva y recordada del discurso ir al minuto 12 con 20 segundos, en el que Martin Luther King dice lo siguiente en el speach:
"And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."2
This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with."
