Fifth Graders Revisit King's 'Dream' Speech At The Lincoln Memorial

After speaking (or, more often, shouting) their lines, the students run back to congratulatory teachers.

On Friday, the fifth graders from Watkins Elementary School in Washington, D.C., gathered at the Lincoln Memorial to recite Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1963 "I have a Dream" speech. Each student delivered one line at a small lectern, and then the class sang songs from the Civil Rights era. This is the fourteenth year of the celebration.
