WASHINGTON (AP) — For President Bill Clinton, this day 50 years ago in the shadows of the Lincoln Memorial, marks "one of the most important days in American history."
Clinton joined President Barack Obama and the family of Martin Luther King Jr. Wednesday to celebrate King's "I Have a Dream" speech and the March on Washington on Aug. 28, 1963.
The "march and that speech changed America," said Clinton, and "opened minds and melted hearts ... and moved millions."
Clinton said racial inequalities remain. But he said it's time to stop complaining and instead get to work — for better education opportunities for all children and implementing health care for all.
He said: "We must push open those stubborn gates" that are holding America back.
