I Have A Dream Speech

Today, I heard (for the first time) that the "I Have A Dream" portion of the famous speech was actually added in spontaneously. On the fly. Apparently, Mahalia Jackson, who was sitting near Dr. King, encouraged him to "tell them about the dream." He pushed his speech papers to the left, and did. Cool doesn't begin to describe it. Wow.
