“On August 28, 1963 — 52 years ago tomorrow — the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I have a dream” speech to a crowd of more than 200,000 Americans, most of them black, but many of them white. “He was full of the symbolism of Lincoln and Gandhi, and the cadences of the Bible,” a @nytimes article declared the following day. “He was both militant and sad, and he sent the crowd away feeling that the long journey had been worthwhile.” @nytimes staff photographer Allyn Baum took this photo earlier that year, when Dr. King sat on the panel of the TV show “Inside Black.” #MLK #tbt” By nytimes on Instagram.
