Fifty years ago, on a hot Wednesday afternoon in the nation’s capital, Martin Luther King Jr. stood in the shadow of Abraham Lincoln and told America about a dream he had.

There is no way he could have imagined then that an African-American boy, who was only 2 years old at the time, would grow up to be president of the United States.
