        Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" Speech | Ken Burns: The National Parks

        The Lincoln Memorial became part of the National Parks system in 1933, when Franklin Roosevelt expanded the park idea to include historical sites as well as majestic natural scenery. Martin Luther King's historic "I Have A Dream" speech took place on the memorial's steps, with two park rangers nearby. In 1980, King's birthplace in Atlanta was dedicated as a National Historic Site. Source: Harper's Ferry Center, Historic Photo Collection.
