Time Celebrates MLK ‘I Have a Dream’ with Special Issue, Website

August 28 marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, and to commemorate that, Time is going all in. The print issue features items reflecting on King’s impact from Maya Angelou, Jesse Jackson, Shonda Rimes, John Conyers, Marco Rubio, Theodore Olson, Malala Yousafzai and more. The cover is a fantastic picture (by Dan Budnik) of King at the legendary March on Washington.

On the digital side, Time has launched a multimedia site, Time.com/onedream. It comes packed with 10 videos, featuring the likes of Joan Baez, Harry Belafonte and several others. The site is the first effort from Red Border Films, Time’s new documentary unit Red Border Films, and it’s quite an  impressive debut.

Time’s special anniversary issue hits newsstands tomorrow.
