EMU Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington [Slideshow]
Eastern Michigan University marked the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s March on Washington with bells and playing King's historic speech at three o'clock, when the speech was originally given.
Over 100 people attended the ceremony and listened to comments from EMU professor Ronald Woods and state representative David Rutledge. Rutledge says there are things King would find utterly amazing if he was here today.
Rutledge says he believes over time the universe bends towards freedom and justice. He says King had an amazing ability to see the bad in people and situations and the opportunities for good.
