March on Washington 50th Anniversary

Posted:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – On this day, August 28th, 50 years ago, one man made a speech, but not just any speech. He made a speech that would change a nation.

It was on the Lincoln Memorial steps in Washington that Martin Luther King Jr. said, "I have a dream".  He dreamed of a better world, where people would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by their character. It was on this day 50 years ago, that he shared that dream with the world.

We wanted to show you what was going on in Washington today to celebrate King and his speech. We also took the time to speak with some of those in Cenla who have been affected by King's words.
