Fifty years ago, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led 250,000 people in the March on Washington. The historic event laid the foundation for the Civil Rights and Voting Rights acts and was a monumental turning point in the movement toward equality. The themes of King's famous speech, "I have a dream," resonate today, as the march against discrimination and economic inequality continues. Forward Movement offers twelve days of prayers, written by the Rev. Robert Thompson, as a way to honor and remember the March on Washington and answer the call to stand up against inequalities in our time. Thompson is a minister in the African-Methodist Church and school minister for Phillips Exeter Academy, a national boarding school located in New Hampshire.
