If you are looking to auction, buy, consign or sell Martin Luther King autographs or any other autographs or memorabilia, please email Nate@NateDSanders.com.

On August 28th, 1963, the steps of the Lincoln Memorial were transformed from mere slabs of cement to a political platform as Martin Luther King, Jr., stood upon them giving his groundbreaking “I Have A Dream” speech to a crowd of over 250,000 civil rights supporters that day. 

As one of the largest rallys for human rights in American history, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, led by King, Jr., became a defining moment in the American Civil Rights Movement.
