Activists, civic leaders and the first African-American president will gather near the spot where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "I Have A Dream" speech 50 years ago in the shadow of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Today's march comes just two months after the Supreme Court effectively erased a key anti-discrimination provision of the Voting Rights Act and raised the bar for consideration of race in university admissions.
