From “I Have a Dream” to “Yes We Can”

In this historic year, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day uncannily falls on the day before we inaugurate America’s first African-American president.  On August 28, 1963, Dr. King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.  In another interesting twist of fate, on the same exact day 45 years later, the Democratic Party officially became the first major American political party to nominate an African-American (or anyone with a minority background, for that matter) candidate for President. And on November 4, 2008, in what many called a realization of Dr. King’s dream, Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States.

Below are videos to show how America had its dream, and arrived at "Yes We Can."
