People hold signs as they gather to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Wednesday marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King's famous "I Have A Dream" speech. About a quarter of a million people gathered at the Lincoln Memorial to hear him speak about equality between blacks and whites.

But according to a new study from the Pew Research Center, despite the half-century that's passed since those memorable words, less than half of Americans, black or white, believe the country has made substantial progress toward racial equality.

Rich Morin, senior editor at Pew, joins the show with more.
