Fifty years ago, at the historic March on Washington, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and proclaimed that he was there to "cash a check for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Join the James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference at Emory University, and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights for the eighth CNN Dialogues forum to engage with social activists who are taking lessons from the past while expanding ideas about justice, inclusion and opportunity to impact the 21st century.
