It was on June 23, 1963, that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. walked down Woodward Ave. as part of the Freedom March.
The next day, he first delivered his famous “I Have A Dream” speech at Cobo Hall Arena on June 24.
More than 100,000 people attended the walk, and King called it “one of the most wonderful things that has happened in America,” according to the Reuther Library.
