Despite this week’s events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, it’s really difficult to find video from the march’s most memorable event: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech. As Dustin Volz pointed out at The Atlantic, it’s nearly impossible to find the speech online.
But a new project hopes to keep the speech’s legacy alive. “Freedom’s Ring” is an animated look at King’s dream. According to creator Evan Bissell, “It highlights a lot of the context of the time, attempting to create a new way to engage with a more complex version of that speech than is usually taught or remembered.”
