The Story of Martin Luther King Jr. by Kid President

The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place 58 years ago this year, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. It was during this march that Dr. King gave his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.
For 56 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Albany has been fulfilling "the dream" by saving and changing the lives of children and teens, especially those who need it most. Thank you, Dr. King, we salute you!
