Fifty years later, King’s vision remains a dream deferred

Fifty years have passed since Martin Luther King articulated a beautiful vision for America in his “I Have a Dream” speech in August 1963. There have been strides. Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, outlawing some discrimination and removing some barriers for blacks to access equal employment opportunities and to participate in the political process. As a result, Barack Obama will serve a second term as the first African-American president of the United States.
