Washington Post: “William Allison, 92, came to today’s march with same sign he marched with in ‘63 pic.twitter.com/qT3kL8VlEP via @HamilHarris #MarchonWashington”

Really great. Speaks volumes.

That sign holds up well. Not just the sign itself. The message.

Believe it or not, this speech is copyrighted and not in the public domain. So enjoy this video while you can. Needless to say, it’s a pretty amazing speech; I listened again today and got chills.

March on Washington anniversary speech draws massive crowds

  • 100k the number of people organizers expect to show up at today’s March on Washington anniversary march, which takes place a few days before the 50th anniversary of the iconic event. Thousands of people are floating around the city for the event, which is being led by the Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III—whose father became a national icon thanks in large part to the 1963 event. That’s not to say things will be the same as they were in 1963—for one thing, security has been beefed up on the National Mall, and most attendees were kept at a distance from the speech itself at the Lincoln Memorial. source
