Thousands Crowd District to ‘Reclaim the Dream’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Conservative activists rallied Aug.
28 in the nation’s capital on the anniversary and at the same
site of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a
Dream’’ speech. Civil rights leaders countered the event and
held a 3-mile plus march from Dunbar High School to the site
of the planned King Memorial near the Tidal Basin.
Eleanor Holmes Norton, Washington’s delegate to
Congress, said she remembers being at King’s March on
Washington, which she said prompted change and ended
segregation in public places. “Glenn Beck’s march will change
nothing. But you can’t blame Glenn Beck for his March-on-
Washington envy,” she said.
The Rev. Al Sharpton, leading the civil rights march and
rally, spoke to the assembled. “The folks who used to criticize
us for marching are trying to have a march themselves,’’ he
said. “We come because the dream has not been achieved.
We’ve made a lot of progress. But we still have a long way to
He said he wasn’t seeking a confrontation with those at the
Beck rally. During the march his group briefly encountered
participants from a rally on the National Mall. “We wouldn’t
disgrace today by allowing you to provoke us,’’ he said.
Marchers encountered the other crowds near the Washington
Monument. Men in tri-cornered hats and people wearing tea
party T-shirts looked on as marchers chanted “Reclaim the
dream’’ and “MLK, MLK.’’ Some marchers chanted “don’t
drink the tea’’ to people leaving Beck’s rally.
In addition to Sharpton and Congresswoman Norton,
speakers at the event included Dr. Barbara Williams-Skinner,
Wade Henderson, District councilman and candidate for mayor
Vincent Gray, Mayor Adrian Fenty, NAACP President Ben
Jealous, National Urban League CEO and President Marc
Morial, Tom Joyner, the Rev. Walter E. Fauntroy and others.

BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
