Today's Tune: "One Vision" By Queen

Martin Luther King, Jr. addresses crowd at the Lincoln Memorial
in Washington, DC, where he gave his "I Have A Dream" speech.

On August 28, 1963, a very large group of people, including many political activists, participated in the 'March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom'. Civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. marched that day, and gave his "I Have A Dream" speech in Washington, DC. His speech was about his dream of all people working and living together in harmony. With that in mind, today I've chosen the Queen song - "One Vision". The song was written about King and his speech on that day, with the idea for it originally coming from drummer Roger Taylor. Obviously, Taylor and the band also dreamed of "hope and unity".
