Sunday marked the 59th anniversary of the March on Washington. It was the site for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place on August 28th, 1963, with 250,000 people taking part. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre commented from the White House on the anniversary:
“So as it relates to March on Washington and that anniversary, the president has said this before and I’ll reiterate, the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech changed the course of history. We continue to reaffirm our commitment to fulfilling America’s founding promise. And the president has made advancing equality core to his administration, as I just laid out. We can’t rest until justice truly rings out for all of us.”
