SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (myFOXDetroit.com) -

Hundreds gathered Wednesday to remember and celebrate those famous words, "I have a dream."

August 28th is the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s March on Washington, where the famous "I have a Dream" speech was given in 1963.

Dr. King also gave the same speech two month prior here in Detroit.

Wednesday afternoon, crowds gathered, ringing bells to commemorate the special occasion.

The bell ringing event is part of the global movement to let freedom ring all across the world, to honor Dr. King and his enduring message of freedom, justice and equality.
