WASHINGTON (AP) - Fifty years ago today, Martin Luther King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington.

Today, people across the country are commemorating the event. The bells at churches and other buildings will ring in almost every state at 3 p.m. Eastern, to mark the hour King spoke to the crowd of hundreds of thousands.

President Barack Obama is among those scheduled to speak at today's commemoration in Washington.

How can anyone remain so uneducated as to not know the truth about MLK? He had communist connections, was a womanizer, plagiarized his doctoral thesis, and his “peaceful” marches were NOT peaceful. The Tulsa Fire Department did riot training in preparation for his planned visit to Tulsa, but he was persuaded not to come to Tulsa. It is a disgrace that a holiday is named after this fraud.
