Civil Rights Quiz | History Hit


This week marks the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.

On August 28th 1963, a hot late-summer day, between 200,000 and 300,000 activists participated in the ‘March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.’ It was a protest unprecedented in scale and ambition.

Throughout the day several major civil rights leaders delivered speeches, but the undoubted highlight was that given by Martin Luther King Jr., the head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

His rallying cry for universal justice and peace resonated throughout the subsequent struggle for equal rights, and 50 years later still has the capacity to stir profound emotion.
