Fifty years ago Wednesday, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at the Lincoln Memorial and told of his dream for America. Now, half a century later, people will gather again to remember his words and look ahead to where they could still take this nation. Emily Schmidt is in Washington with more about what to expect. It's a day forever etched in American history, sending forth lasting ideas and ideals from a king. "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed," said Dr. King. Some 250,000 people attended, Untold numbers, worldwide, were inspired. Now, 50 years later, at the same place, some from that generation and newer ones, hope to evoke the spirit of that day. "Dr. King took us to another level," says the Rev. Jesse Jackson. This was a high mountain moment of hope." Then, as now, dignitaries from all races and creeds are slated to speak. Oprah Winfrey, Leann Rimes and Jamie Foxx. Civil rights icons like John Lewis and Caroline Kennedy. And presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Following yo a 2011 dedicatuibm where the nation's first black president praised the first black man to receive a monument on the mall. "Without that shining moment, without Dr. King's glorious words, we might not have had the courage to come as far as we have," said President Obama.
