Today is…Dream Day Quest and Jubilee

On August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., Martin Luther King Jr. gave what would come to be known as his “I Have A Dream” speech. King’s speech was a call to America to live up to the words of its founding documents, a longing for a dream of racial harmony, and an appeal for freedom to ring out from every part of the country. The speech was part of The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, an event calling for economic and social justice for African Americans, in which about 250,000 people of many races and creeds participated. The day is credited for helping to spur on civil rights legislation, which culminated in the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In June of 1963, President Kennedy had announced he would push for civil rights legislation, and the leaders of the march met with the President following the march. Dream Day Quest and Jubilee commemorates this day, and is the third of three annual Emancipation Days of Respect, days “created to promote unity, respect, and remembrance.” The first, Humanitarian Day, takes place on Dr. King’s birthday, and the second, Victims of Violence Day Wholly Day, takes place on the anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination.

How to Observe
Observers of this day are encouraged to wear black and white out of respect for peoplehood. Today is the most fitting day to read or watch Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech. Documentaries such as The March, Eyes on the Prize, or King: A Filmed Record…Montgomery to Memphis could be watched. Above all, this is a day to reflect on Dr. King’s words and how they can still impact, inspire, and guide us individually, and as a country in the 21st century.
