The greatest 16 minutes of the 20th century

The greatest 16 minutes of the 20th century.

Many of us know Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech from snippets and news clips. If you have time for reflection today, watch it here, all the way through. It's unmissable. In an era of open injustice and brutal hatred, King challenges his listeners to actively build a better world for themselves and their children. We know the highlights, but watching the whole 16-minute speech makes the context of '63 shatteringly clear, and underscores the clarity and power of MLK's vision.
