Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech was an iconic moment that changed the course of our nation and created opportunities for millions of Americans. Now, 50 years later, thousands stood on the same mall where King delivered his courageous message. There were plenty of Detroiters in the crowd including the Rev. Charles Williams of the Historic King Solomon Baptist Church and the National Action Network.
