    "I Have a Dream" 50th anniversary

    You can listen to the entire speech here.

    A couple of other links of interest: Juan Williams's excellent piece on the music of the March, and a piece by a writing buddy of mine, Enuma Okoro, on the women of the civil rights movement (which also touches on the music).

    This isn't just about today's anniversary, but I just found it and today is very interesting: NPR started a twitter account Today in 1963, to recreate the many historic events of 1963 as if it were happening today. It's both hilarious and a neat way to make history feel real - I hated history when I was in high school, something like this would have totally make me more engaged in it.

    Anyway, they are of course covering the March today.
