August 28, 1963.

50 yrs wasn’t that long ago. Thought this was cool though..

'I Have a Dream' beat JFK's 'Ask not what you can do' speech

There’s no doubt that King’s speech was the most memorable part of the March on Washington. It’s still taught in school, and memorized by children, half a century later.

But how does it compare against other pivotal speeches by 20th century leaders, such as John F. Kennedy or Franklin D. Roosevelt? Well, a panel of more than 130 scholars got together in 1999 to rate the best speeches of the 20th century and King’s speech ranked No. 1.
