What Obama Will Say Today

President Obama previewed his speech today marking the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "March on Washington" with Tom Joyner:

"All I can do on an occasion like this is just to celebrate the accomplishments of all of those folks whose shoulders we stand on and then remind people that the work is still out there for us to do, and that we honor his speech but also, more importantly in many ways, the organization of the ordinary people who came out for that speech. We honor them not by giving another speech ourselves -- because it won't be as good -- but instead by just doing the day-to-day work to make sure this is a more equal and more just society."

The speech at 2:45 pm ET from the Lincoln Memorial, the same place where King delivered his famous address.
