Commentary: March on Washington - A perspective 50 years later

Remembrances of the Aug. 28, 1963, March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom are often overwhelmed by "the speech," Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s master class in American rhetoric. But "I Have a Dream" was hardly the only speech given on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial that day, and the original purposes of the great march should not be lost as we look back 50 years later.
