Obama, Oprah, Jaime Foxx To Attend 50th Anniversary March On Washington
Tomorrow, Wednesday Aug 28, thousands of people will flock to Washington D.C. to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the March On Washington, where Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous I Have A Dream Speech. 50 years later, President Barack H Obama will stand on those same steps in front of the Lincoln Memorial and deliver a speech as well. Just him standing there is symbolic enough of the past 50 years, and MLK’s legacy.
Also attending are former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, Congressman John Lewis who marched and spoke along side MLK, and several celebrities including, Oprah Winfrey, Jaime Foxx, LeAnn Rimes, Natalie Grant, BeBe Winans, and Forrest Whitaker. Hill Harper, and Soledad O’Brien will emcee the Let Freedom Ring commemoration of MLK’s I Have a Dream Speech. So tune in tomorrow and watch a celebration of history, as well as a new history in the making.
