In his famous “I have a dream” speech, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called for freedom to ring from every mountainside in our great country. Encouraged by his message of peace and equality, the United States moved closer to becoming a more perfect union. We honor his legacy today and every day at public lands where everyone can be inspired.
