Barack & Michelle Obama Mark 50 Years of 'I Have a Dream'

President Obama and Michelle Obama are joined by former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on Wednesday (August 28) in Washington, D.C.

It was fifty years ago on that day that Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and gave his historic “I Have a Dream” speech.

The politicians were joined for the ceremony by Oprah Winfrey.

“Celebrating MLK 50th anniversary march at Lincoln memorial. #letFreedomring,” Oprah tweeted that day.

FYI: Michelle is wearing a Tracy Reese dress.

This event included speakers Jamie Foxx and other pals of the president but didn’t invite Tim Scott, the only black member of the Senate, to speak. Could it possibly be because Scott is a Republican and a critic of this president, and Obama was too uncomfortable sharing the stage with him??

obama said he would be a man of peace but he is actually an awful war monger. he has done so many bad things for the usa people. the republicans would have been worse but obama- well I am so disappointed in how awful the us has become lately- so many civil liberties taken away yuck
