Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech on these steps 57 years ago during the historic March on Washington. Recently, the US Capitol saw another March on Washington, one that - like the former- took place amid nationwide protests for racial justice and an end to police violence. On this episode of Our Voices, you'll hear from activists, policemen and leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement as we go beyond the protest. We speak to protesters about their goals, who they are and what compels them to speak up amid increasing tensions in the United States?
