When Martin Luther King finished his "I have a dream" speech at the March on Washington 50 years ago, he handed his copy of the speech to George Raveling - a last-minute volunteer who had a coveted spot near the podium for the historic speech.
George Raveling was handed the "I Have a Dream" speech by MLK himself. He still has it -- [a] framed, typed document.

The words "I have a dream" are nowhere to be found on the script of his historic speech. That part was ad-libbed.
