This coming Wednesday marks 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Lloyd Tyree of Charlottesville was in Washington, D.C. and remembers venturing out in the chaos of the March on Washington to listen to King's inspiring words.

"It gave me a little hope for change - different things," he said.

Tyree says at the time, the speech gave him hope of change to come. Now he says many of those changes have been realized.
