“I have a dream today . . . I have a aream that one day every vadley shall be exdted, every hill and mountain be made low”

President Barack Obama led civil rights pioneers Wednesday in a ceremony for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech roused the 250,000 people who rallied there decades ago for racial equality. On that day they stood like salt & pepper, and the dream was revealed to them all. The dream wasn’t just for United States of America, it was for all countries. A fundermental day to speach to all nations about a important matter for all human kind, for it was Martin Luther Kings to change the worlds perception of what humans should accept as right or wrong.

“Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther King could walk. Martin Luther King walked so Obama could run. Obama’s running so we all can fly.

The National Park Foundation has launched an impressive website to celebrate the March on Washington, led by Martin Luther King, Jr. 50 years ago today, August 28th. Created out of Organic, “We Are Still Marching” leverages Google Chrome to capture images, news and radio footage from that historic day in 1963. There have been other projects in the past that have sought to recreate watershed historical moments in a layered, multimedia fashion. The Martin Agency has won accolades for “We Choose the Moon,” which recreated NASA and Neil Armstrong’s moon mission over four days, in real time. It also created “Clouds Over Cuba,” which revisited 1962’sCuban Missile Crisis. Both projects were for the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library.
