Marchers declare King's 1963 dream unfinished

Tens of thousands of people marched to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington on Saturday, commemorating the 50th anniversary of his "I Have a Dream" speech and pledging that his vision includes equality for gays, Latinos, the poor and the disabled.


The event was homage to a generation of activists that endured fire hoses, police abuses and indignities to demand equality for African Americans. But there was a strong theme of unfinished business, with speakers lamenting what they see as new attacks on civil rights. (AP)
