Marchers commemorate the 50th anniversary of The March on Washington on Agust 24, 2103, in Washington, DC. During the March in 1963, civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., gave his "I Have a Dream" speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial (rear). "This is not a time for nostalgic commemoration... The task is not done. The journey is not complete. We can and we must do more," said King's son Martin Luther King III, speaking from the precise spot where his father delivered one of American history's greatest speeches. AFP Photo/Paul J.
