I Have a Dream Tour

“We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.” -Jesse Owens, World Record-Setting Olympic Athlete

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Freedom Plaza, once known as Western Plaza, was renamed in 1988 in honor of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his “I Have Dream” speech which he worked on across the street from the plaza at the Willard Hotel. A time capsule containing a bible, a robe, and other items belonging to Dr. King was buried in 1988 in Freedom Plaza and will be opened again in 2088. Experience for yourself the journey of a people who have had a dream – a dream “to be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
