‘I have a dream’ ... 50 years later
LADD – It’s been 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous speech, which will forever go down in history.
The “I Have a Dream” speech is said to be a defining moment in the American Civil Rights Movement. King delivered the heartfelt speech on Aug. 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. It has been documented that more than 250,000 civil rights supporters from all over the country crowded together to hear King speak.
Among the supporters was Jean Conway of Ladd. At the time, the 37-year-old was on her way home from teaching for the Air Force in Germany and was staying in Arlington, Va., with her twin sister and brother-in-law, waiting for her vehicle to be shipped.
