On the third Monday in January, we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King is known as being a Civil Rights Activist and preacher. His “I Have A Dream” speech given at the 1963 March on Washington is one of his most recognized. However, it was not the speech he had written for the day! To fill in the backstory, watch the short video from History Channel or the Time production called “The Spirit of the Day” or read the Biography.com Channel article about how the speech went from scripted to the unscripted.
