Washington DC will be buzzing on Wednesday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The most notable event will be at the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. once stood and sounded out his dream for racial equality. Fifty years later, President Barack Obama and former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter are set to speak at this same spot and pay tribute to this historic day.

This event will be broadcast live during AirTalk.
